and all at once

November 24, 2012

she was sick … poor little soul …

temperature

cough (on chest nasty cough)

sneezing (balloons and streams coming out)

snuffling

restless

teething

upset tummy

sickness

and for the first time ever she has nappy rash

poor poor bunny

… and giving her Calpol is harder than the hardest hard thing, she hates it, we’ve tried every way and asked advice but nothing works she absolutely goes bonkers … not just Calpol but brufem, Boots own brand and so on … next stop which I want to avoid is suppositories apparently.

Taking her out for a bundled up walk all snug and warm in her pram or pushchair, but I can see the resentment in her eyes, “mother why won’t you make this stop?”, “Why did we leave California?” … but she is comforted constantly by her Granby who she shares a special greeting with, they touch fingers in the manner of ET and they both grin their secret just for each other smile … and she saw Auntie Clare on Skype which caused her to try to dive into the computer…

a moment of relaxation with Granby

but right now she is pale and fed up and very grumbly … not sleeping much and I also have a bit of a bug so we’re both a bit fed up but we did have a sleep this morning from 8 – 10am and then a warm bath together and now she’s ready for another snooze. Looking after a poorly little person is hard enough but doing it when you yourself feel like death warmed up is a challenge indeed … hats off to all parents I say.

Roll on recovery!
