Welcome to the sick house

It's been a doozy of a week so far. First Batman was sick. Then Brynna was (still is) sick (and on her 7 month birthday! Yikes!). Now I'm sick. Sickety, sick, sick, sick!

It's just a bad head cold, nothing more. But WOW! No one ever tells you how difficult it will be to take care of your child while you are sick. Seriously, all I wanted to do all day yesterday was curl up in a ball and cry, my head hurt so bad. And all B wanted to do was play and scream (in happiness) and stand... Needless to say, yesterday I was NOT a great mom... probably not even a good mom. She spent a lot of time on the floor playing by herself :(

Batman was nice enough to come straight home, grab Little Miss and head off to Great Grandma's for a couple hours.

Oh blessed sleep! It's amazing what an hour of solid, uninterrupted sleep will do for a cold and head ache (and a little ibuprofen too!).

And how it's possible, I don't know, but I missed my girl while they were away. Like- had to smother her with kisses and hugs when they got home- missed her (which probably wasn't the best idea seeing as, well I'm sick- the spread of germs and all).

I missed Batman too, but my girl... it's just different. I have a feeling I have a problem.

We were supposed to go visit Batman's brother and his family this weekend. I hope I feel well enough to go by tomorrow. I miss seeing them and I know they miss seeing us (especially Little Miss- she's their only cousin, you know). I'm feeling tons better today, so keep your fingers crossed that tomorrow is even better!

Bummer deal, this sick business.

Eric and I got sick that past week and even though Grandparents were begging to take the baby off our hands I just couldn't let him go. I think I gotz a problem too.

I find myself get more attached to him really.

We've all had those "not a great mom" sick days! So don't feel guilty.

I hope you all start feeling better soon!

Hope you feel better very soon!

I know what you mean about not wanting to leave baby... I've noticed myself not wnting to even leave Jessy in the mornings to go to work! Then missing her so much during the day... Le sigh. We should start a club! ;)
