Wow its quiet in here
Our house this week is dedicated to hand, foot and mouth disease, to scary looking blisters, peeling skin, crying, whining and losing 1.5kg’s in a week. To broken sleep and fighting to get any food, drink or medication down the little guy’s throat.
I hate it when my kids are sick. I wish I could take it all away!
DestructaBoy is pretty much always sick but its usually low level stuff… ear infections, colds, that kind of thing. Seeing him in pain has been awful, and we still have a few days to go.
This week we are hoping and praying for a well child, a few hours of sleep and some much needed peace and quiet.
On a different note I don’t know if its a developmental thing or a side effect of being sick but he’s become very demanding! He’ll climb your legs until you pick him up, point in a direction and say “go” until you are where he wants, then he points at whatever has caught his attention until you hand it over. And the defiance if you dare to disobey! There’s the raised eyebrow, chin jutted out and the accompanying finger wag. I wonder where he gets that from?…
