You Are Amaizng

I have been stuck at home all week with a sick toddler. It’s just a bad cold, but she is too sick to go to daycare. She’s barely sleeping because of this very violent cough that ramps up as soon as she lays her head down. This means that we’re not sleeping either.

Feeling a lot like I have a newborn, I am drifting through the week in a hazy, exhaustion laden fog.

Did you know you can’t give cough medicine to anyone under the age of two?

It’s really awful. She sounds like she is being tortured.

I have to get to work now (fingers crossed this nap will be different). But the next time you are having a week like I am and feeling less than stellar, remember to have compassion for yourself.

You are amazing. We are all doing the best that we can. For today, that’s enough.

  1. My dear Kelly, I remember how you feel right now. And you are amazing. And your compassion for Hazel just keeps coming through, even in your exhausted state. Love and miss you all so much. Mom

  2. Kelly, Hoping that little Hazel is better soon.
    I especially love “We’re all doing the best that we can.”
    I think, for everyday, that’s enough.

  3. Oh, I feel your pain! We’ve spent the better part of 2013 at home sick! It’s no fun, but it made me realize that our quiet days at home are too few. So, I’ve decided to make lazy days around the house more of a priority! Hang in there! Hugs to Hazel.

    • Thanks Betsy! Last night, she slept better than she has all week. I feel like a new woman! Love your point of view- thanks for sharing. Hope you are all feeling better. Hugs to all of you!
