Hope’s first cold

July 20, 2012

Poor old Hope has got a cold … and so have I … and so did Granby … we blame her!

The little monkey hates Calpol as well and even though I put it gently in a syringe and put it in tiny amounts into the side of her mouth she still manages to scream blue murder and then sluch the whole lot out again when I turn to get the cloth to wipe her face … she is so determined and so intent on not missing anything that it was the tiredest baby in the world ever who finally gave into sleep tonight and her precious little red rimmed eyes eventually closed and her hot and clammy little hands relaxed and gave up their battle with sleep.

She snored herself awake last night and looked so indignant when she sneezed and she developed a runny nose. Poor Hope, it must be so strange to suddenly feel hot and sticky and well just rough and have no clue why … and then when your Mummy stuffs you full of hated Calpol it is the last straw.

Heading to bed now, she’s in my old rocking cot (Mother kept it for 47 years!!) beside my bed and I don’t want to wake her with my snuffling … but it would be nice to have someone turn round to me and say you poor thing and give me a cup of grown up Calpol (aka a hot toddy) and then rock me to sleep… aahhhh well … at least Granby’s on the mend now!

    Poor Hope … hope she is feeling a little better now. Its hard for them to deal with cold when they are little …. rivers of snot, and they don’t know how to clear their noses. Don’t worry, she will grow to love calpol!

      I know … poor bunny is very bemused this morning by the fact that her nostrils are glued together … the Calpol went all over both of us and then the nappy explosion to end all nappy explosions came in a fit of humph!!!
