I officially have a sick baby. This is new ground for this momma and I am not liking the way it makes me feel – so helpless and like a failure. I have been doing lots of cuddling with Jackson today, and paying close attention to him, but he is definitely not himself. He has been extra fussy and the poor guy is really congested. I am headed to the pharmacy in a bit to pick up ear drops his pediatrician called in as well as antihistamine to clear his passages a bit.
What a bummer – I thought it was rough to be sick myself and take care of him but this is almost worse because I don’t know exactly what is wrong and how to fix it. I wish I could just buy him a toy and give him some soup to take his mind off of this. And I probably need a big bottle of wine.
And, I just found out my grandma is in the hospital. It doesn’t sound too serious, but they always dumb it down to me. What a great start to the weekend, right??
On a brighter note, JB has started saying the ma-ma sound. I pretend like he knows it’s for me, but I don’t think he has totally put it together yet.
