This adorable little boy? He got me sick. He looks so harmless, but the truth is he is full of icky germs and likes to spread them to his Mama. He started running a fever just before bedtime on Thursday night but had no other symptoms. The fever was mysteriously gone Friday morning and he didn’t show any signs of being sick. Of course Evie started the fever Friday morning so I ended up staying home with both of them.
Saturday night we went to Disney on Ice (which was awesome except for the part where Evie didn’t want to sit still and I had to take her out to walk around) where we shared our $8 popcorn and $4 bottle of pop.
Sunday morning Zach woke up a stuffy, sneezy, coughing mess (he may have been coughing and sneezing a little Sat. night but I just assumed it was allergies with the crazy weather we’ve had). And so did I, with an emphasis on the coughing. And then I sent him to day care that way today because I already missed work on Friday. Yes, I’m that mom. I know. Chances are he got it there anyway.
Fortunately, Evie seems to have escaped the cough of death. I? Feel like my throat is on fire and I’m pretty sure Zach does too since I’ve been listening to him hack and cough in bed for over two hours now.
The sad part is that I can’t drug up either one of us since I’m still breastfeeding (though rarely these days) and all those reports about kids’ cold/cough medicine scared me away from giving Zach anything. I guess we’ll just spend the night coughing together.
P.S. But seriously? How cute is his hair all spiked up like that? I love it!
P.P.S. Here’s a little bonus video of Evie walking the corridor at Kemper during Disney on Ice. She’s getting awfully good at it!
