I'm sorry. You did WHAT?

My husband, usually a good father, sometimes makes SPECTACULARLY bad choices in parenting.

He let the boys (4 & 6, thankyouverymuch) watch Lady in the Water, because he said that it was A BEDTIME STORY.  

*tries to refrain from calling own husband an idiot*

Maybe M. Night Shaymaylan's Kids aren't as easily spooked as mine, but mine haven't slept through the night since.  They dragged their pillows and blankets into our room and slept on the floor one night, and I went into their room for about an hour last night.  I'm done, though.  Hubby will be the one soothing and cajoling and reassuring tonight.  

Oh, who am I kidding.  Hubby  has a lot of talents, but those three aren't on the list.

Poor Aaron is still sick.  I took him to the Doctor, and he doesn't have strep or the flu, but a fever and a wicked cough that doesn't seem to be getting better.  Breathing treatments (All hail the almighty nebulizer), cough medicine and Tylenol.  Anyone have any advice?  What makes you feel better when you're sick?

Meanwhile, Mummy is steadily on the path to crazy town...  not one moment by myself in a week...
