Phew!

Today my two-year-old ate food. He didn't have to sit on my lap every hour he was awake, and he didn't melt into a puddle of "moooooommmmyyyy" sobs every time I had to stand up and, say, get him a Popsicle. And he didn't feel hot, and he even smiled and laughed some! Turns out he had a double ear infection, and since we got him on antibiotics on Thursday he's finally, on Monday, returning to his normal happy-learning-to-talk two-year-old self. Phew! If there's one thing that gets in the way of writing (and grading, and eating, and sleeping...), it's a very sick child.

I'm so glad he's feeling better!

He's giggling upstairs with big brother right now. Occasionally I hear my husband yell "Hey!," which is ominous, but it's worth several rolls of toilet paper (or whatever they're getting into) to hear him happy again!

  1. Ack! There's nothing quite like a sick child for making a parent feel utterly powerless. Glad he's feeling better.

    1. Powerless is the perfect way to put it! :D
