Lorelei has been sick all week. The kind of sick that she just lays there (or sleeps), doesn’t want to eat or drink, and is tired of taking medicine. I hate when the kids are sick. I have about three days of tender, motherly nurturing in me and then I’m over it. Am I the only one?
Am I also the only one that goes straight to thinking about how kids died of sickness back in the old days?
It’s funny how the kids are all so different. Noah gets sick, but pushes through it. He’s been like that since he was a baby. No sitting on the couch for him! Nora rarely gets sick. It may be a trade off for the times we’ve had to go to the emergency room for wasp stings and poison ivy. Henry is going to be my baby that doesn’t tolerate vaccinations. With his first shots he had a fever and the general pitifulness of not feeling well for a few days.
Hopefully she gets better soon. We’re on sick day three. :o)
