Sick Toddler

Well, I had ideas for today’s post, but Bubs has a cold. For those of you who do not have kids or your kid hasn’t been sick yet, basically what that means is that the whole night & day revolve around your sick child.

Poor Bubs, of course there isn’t much I can do for him, and he doesn’t understand why he doesn’t feel good. 😦

He went to bed last night as normal, then starting at 10:45 pm, he woke up EVERY hour until about 5:45, then he slept about 2 1/2 hours and we’ve basically been up since. (For those of you who do not have kids, that means this Momma was up every hour as well).

His nose is so stuffed up, I got about a 25-30 min nap out of him earlier. Which was about enough time to drink a cup of coffee, then his congestion woke him up.

I tried to give him a bath after his short nap, normally he LOVES bath time, but not today. He screamed the entire time. At least he was clean for a few mins, the slobber & snot seem to be never ending. After his brief bath, he ate a snack of crackers & a banana. The rest of the afternoon has consisted of this…

It’s only 2:45… I am exhausted and so is he! I thawed a jar of my homemade organic chicken noodle soup for him to eat later, hopefully that helps a little.

I guess my blog ideas will have to wait until tomorrow. I’m off to warm up my cup of coffee for the 4th time today.

What do you do when your toddler is sick?
