When Your Child is Sick

  Hey y'all! I hope everyone's week is going well, this week has been better than the last week for us. You see Miller got his very first cold the Friday after Easter, and naturally we all got it too. So we've been busy with trips to the doctor, trips to the pharmacy, and trips to the couch so Miller can nap on mommy. Anyways, I thought I'd share a few thoughts from the brain of a mama with a sick babe.

babies and colds

  • "Well for having a weakened immune system we're pretty lucky that this is his first cold and he's almost 6 months old."

  • "Awww Daniel Tiger has a episode all about being sick....wait why isn't he going to the vet? This is incredibly inaccurate. "

  • "There should be an easier way to give a baby nasal drops! Isn't there an app for that?!"

  • "Parents should have immunity when their kids are sick. Don't get me wrong I'd rather have a 1,000 colds than Miller be sick once, but it's a new level of hard when you're both sick."

  • "Oh wow, I lost a little weight! Jokes on you cold!"

  • "Ugh liquid amoxicillin...we meet again. I had almost forgotten that smell. Until now."

  • "If I'm going to get through this I'm going to need to double down on caffeine. I can probably Google how to put in a I.V...."

  • "I never understood the people wanting a cure for the common cold. Now I do. Is there a walk for that?"

  • "How is he this cute and energetic yet still so sick? I feel like death. Does he feel like death?"

  • "I wonder how many days I can wear my hair in a messy bun before it stays that way permanently..."

  • "When will this cold end?! Like is he going to college with this cold or what?!"

Thoughts for Thursday

  1. I have said in the past that anyone contemplating having a baby needs to take care of the baby when they (the parent) is sick because, as you know, you can't "relax" and rest when they are sick; their needs tend to come first. Its tough too when both are sick but you just keep plowing on like you did. It never gets easier either, sad to say; you just hope they don't get sick often.

    Hope both of you are feeling better by now!
