Ah, sick baby days. I have missed you! (Ahem… NOT!).
The whole This Place is Now a Home family has been healthy for the last few weeks (following our unfairly long bout of sickness after sickness), but I fear that we are entering the realm of boogers again. Owen has had a low-grade fever on and off for the last few days, along with an unprecedented amount of boogers. This morning when he woke up, in fact, his little face was so covered in dried green snot that I actually carried him into our bedroom to show his face to Benjamin before I cleaned him up. Nice, huh? I’ve been using the boogie sucker, wiping nonstop and using a humidified at night, but the boogers just keep coming. My throat is beginning to feel a little sore and Benjamin is starting to feel a little congested as well. I guess that was bound to happen; we’ve been going a mile a minute for the last few weeks, gearing up for the big move, and we haven’t exactly been getting lots of sleep. We’re loading up on the vitamins and doing our best to keep this sickness at arm’s length.
Oh, and Owen’s STILL working on those top two teeth that have been threatening to pop through for the last 2 weeks. I think I see the tips coming through the gums, but the boogers compounded with the drooling is enough to fill a bathtub. Yuck.
In other news, our new daycare doesn’t start for a few more weeks, so we’re stuck driving Owen back into the city before we go to work each day, which is a HUGE HUGE HUGE pain and takes several hours out of our day. Hours that I would really, really rather spend unpacking. But c’est la vie. We’ll get unpacked eventually.
Send us healthy vibes so this boogerfest doesn’t turn into anything worse?
