Is this initiation or hazing?!

I am at a loss for words... I have no idea which end is up... Our sweet doggy is home and can not stand or sit so YOU picture the mess... My sweet baby boy is sick AGAIN for the 3rd time in a month...hacking up a lung, can't sleep, fever so YOU picture the sleepless chaos... Today was....well....um... put it this way...I felt like Meredith Grey (on her WORST day @ the hospital) meets one of those Vet 9-1-1 shows. Baby in bed crying b/c he wants to snuggle... Doggy two floors down whining and howling b/c she has to pee and can't MAKE herself go in her pen (kind of the bed-pan issue I had after having kids.) Get baby calm...maybe asleep? She's let loose and finally pees!! YAY!!! Now baby is screaming for more snuggles and I have a load of pee-stained blankets to take care of... CRAP!!! There is a load of laundry only 1/2 way thru a cycle IN the washer....these blankets stink! They HAVE TO GO IN! I flip the switch to the shortest spin cycle and GO WITH IT. 9 minutes later spin is done. I yell up to the baby to just give me two minutes - he says, "K!" I take soapy but SPUN clothes out (knowing full well I will have to wash them AGAIN later) and throw them in the dryer... Squeeze the blankets in - PU! Start the wash. CRAP! Baby is now sleeping and I have to leave in 12 minutes to pick up my other two @ school!!! HELP?!?!?! ANYONE?!?!?! Uh, oh. Doggy is whining...probably POOP heading out anytime now! Think I can clean THAT up and get baby in the car asleep all in 12 minutes? I have been in a sorority!! I will take HAZING over THIS any day! (Don't get me wrong - I am BEYOND THRILLED TO HAVE OUR PUP HOME!!!!! THANKFUL BEYOND WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!)

Have you thought of the puppy wee-wee pads for her to lay on? Much easier to clean-up than blankets.

Oh my, what a day! Things have got to go up from here (don't they). Stay strong, and keep your sense of humor! I hope the little guy feels better soon and the pup continues to heal and can "go" without assistance soon! I wish for you a good nights sleep!

Oh goodnes. /cyber hug and a piece of chocolate just for you!
I know how the sick kiddo thing is , as well as sick doggy, but not at the same time...
When our dog had surgery, she wanted to be on my lap. She was still groggy from surgery so she peed on me:) Hope it gets better soon!

Glad your puppy is home, but sorry to hear that you had such a rough time of it yesterday.

My 2 year old was sick yesterday so I also had my hands full, trying to take care of him while keeping his sister away so she didn't get sick...but also giving her enough attention that she didn't feel neglected.

Its times like this that moms really need another couple arms...or the ability to stretch/bend ourselves like Mrs. Incredible....or even better, a live-in maid to help!
