My Turn

Now that my son is doing a lot better, it’s me who’s getting the sniffles, a sore throat and a cloudy brain. Not surprising: for the past 5 days, Elliot has been spreading snot all over his hands, his eyes, his cheeks, his hair, my shoulders, my chest, my face…

But how do you take care of a baby who is full of energy, but wants you to hold him a lot because he’s not completely healed and still coughs regularly, when all you can think of is how nice it would be to climb into bed and curl up into a ball? Let me know if you know. In the meantime, I’ll do my best. Lucky for me, at least, last night Elliot went back to his previous routine of waking up only once at night, which allowed me to sleep a little bit more than I had in the past week.

Now if only he would sleep for more than a 20 minutes stretch during the day! Then maybe, just maybe, I could have a nap, too…
