The Plague

Today I am running on empty. I am tired, irritable and emotional. I cried while cooking breakfast and honestly did not even react when my kid pulled my hair. Its been one of those weeks.

EJ is sick for the first time ever. And really that is crazy. He is 14 1/2 months old. But, beside a few minor colds and an ear infection that we did not know he had, he has been perfectly healthy. And no, I am not a germ freak at.all. Y'all my kid eats dirt. I have no choice, get over germs or lose my mind.
See DIRT all around his mouth.
Until this week when he started running 102+ fevers. I get its a virus, it was bound to happen. But man am I tired. Emotional drained from worrying. Physically drained from a serious lack of sleep.

Welcome to Motherhood! I am sure the day that he wakes up in the middle of the night yakking everywhere and in my dazed state I find myself cleaning vom off the floor will be worse. But, for today, its the worst we have had and Momma is tired.

Sick or not, the kid is pretty darn adorable. Don't you think?

Aww, hang in there. It is scary and pitiful when they get those fever viruses. H has had two. Soon he will be back to his usual active take the newborn mentality and nap when he naps. I took several naps with H when she was sick. 'Cause babies don't give mommas time to recover - God bless their resilience.

Poor baby boy! And mama. That is the sweetest picture though!

Have fun charting the meds ;-)
