- bad reactions to vaccinations
- chicken pox
- 2 emergency room visits
- 4 upper respiratory infections
- allergies (too young to be tested; self-diagnosed by mommy)
- 103.5 fever
- 4 month long intermittent cough
And now.... strep throat. The kid can't catch a break.
So I decided that today, I don't care about being the perfect mom who only lets her toddler watch 10-15 minutes of educational TV per day. We're watching a fun movie, dangit. And we're going to enjoy it. Isn't that the best part of being sick? That's the part I remember.... that, and eating mac 'n cheese.
We're doing both.
But I seem to be enjoying it a little more than Niall. This little book worm decided he was tapped out after 30 minutes of "Tangled" and started reading his sign language book. Well, good for you, buddy. As for me, I'm zonked after a long morning of urgent care and filling prescriptions, so I will continue to have a lazy day (at least for the rest of the movie).
After tomorrow, he won't be contagious anymore and we'll go back to our regular routine. But for now, I'm allowing myself to enjoy some R&R without incessant eye twitching and going cabin fever crazy. We're just gonna ride this thing out.
And P.S., if you are in this picture from brunch at the Martins yesterday, I sincerely hope you and/or your kids don't get strep. So sorry! We had a blast seeing you, though :)
Niall loves your votes!
