Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

Tuesday afternoon, the fever started. She woke up really hot from her nap. An unusually long one. Wednesday, more fever. Thursday, she seemed to be on the mend, except the boogers. So I took her to mom’s morning out. She made it 40 minutes before I got a call to pick her up.

Friday she was a lot worse. Higher fever (like 102.4) and absolutely miserable. She wanted to be held or snuggled all day. So in between drop offs and bus stops and picks ups, this is pretty much all we did all day long.

I knew she wasn’t feeling good when her breathing changed and her body relaxed. I checked on my phone. Sure enough, she was out. I don’t even remember the last time this happened.

There was a total of three naps on me on Friday and one nap in her crib. Safe to say she wasn’t feeling well at all. I didn’t do much of anything Friday except sit with her. Fortunately, her sisters were great little helpers and did a lot of other little things so I could stay with her.

Saturday, was more of the same. She wasn’t quite as warm, but still very miserable and feeling yucky. She wanted and needed mommy. And I was glad to be there for her.

Finally, Sunday after her nap, I saw smiles. Smiles I hadn’t seen in several days. No more fever, but still a lot of snot.

I’m glad that everybody at our house was able to help out and keep things moving so that E could fight her bug and get on the mend. Fingers and toes crossed that it doesn’t hit anybody else.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

  1. Poor little thing! Nothing is worse than a sick little one — so glad she’s feeling better!

  2. Poor lover. I think Red had that same thing 2 weeks ago. His little ears pick up almost every cold he gets and turns them into ear infections.

    I LOVE E’s little “pebbles” ponytail. So precious. Give her a hug from me and I hope ya’ll all stay well!

  3. Poor little bug! I hate when the kids are sick – it’s even worse when they are so sick you don’t see the normally happy-go-lucky kid side. Happy to hear she’s on the mend and you were able to stay close by :).

    I tried to leave a comment earlier but I got the message that it wasn’t posted because it was waiting moderation???? I don’t know what that means??? I hope this one will post.

    I’m sorry your precious E was sick but glad that you were there to hold and comfort her until her cute smiles came back. I hope that the rest of you remain well. Hugs, Grammy Lura

    What big girls I and N for helping mommy out.

  8. Awwwww. I’m glad she is feeling better.

    Sounds like we had a similar week. Max slept on me for days (honestly, I didn’t mind… he is past the point of wanting to sleep on mommy, so it made me feel good to have a few more moments of that). But, everyone is back to normal today!

    Hope your household is back to normal, too!

  20. Poor baby! They are so helpless when they are sick and so small. Of course that makes me love them even more with all the snuggle time I get! Glad she is feeling better!

  21. Awe poor little girl. There’s nothing that makes me feel powerless when my little ones get sick…but I also just love how they fold into me with the hugs {sigh}, it won’t last too much longer…
    Take care!

  22. glad to see she is feeling better… maybe she just needed extra love and snuggles from her mommy 🙂

  23. Glad she’s better and no one else got sick.
    A.J. managed to get hand, foot and mouth – for the second time.
    So all week we’ve been dealing with fevers, snot and now sores on his mouth and hands.
