Falling apart

Just so that you don't suffer from illusions that parenting is a cakewalk, lemme tell you about our weekend.

My poor baby has a rash, which might, or might not, be eczema. He rubs his little face till it is red. He has been spitting up like there is no tomorrow. He has been eating breastmilk that I froze because I am taking sinus medicine, and that makes his poop runny. His tiny ring finger on his tiny (but fat) left hand is infected.

Needless to say, we are going to the doctor today. We're just waiting for a callback. I guess it is silly to assume we could get in for an appointment on a Monday morning. Meanwhile, this little man just warms my heart with his gummy smiles and shy-flirty blinks.

So, yeah... it IS a cakewalk.

Aw...poor baby... and Mommy! Hope it's something simple and that you were able to get into the doctor today. Both of you get some rest and feel better soon! :)

I know what ya mean - just when you think it's all going great, it gets crazy. Jadyn has her first cold and it totally threw me for a loop. She, however, seems perfectly content to snort and sniffle, while I check on her as she sleeps to make sure she's still breathing. Sheesh!

Well, he is still beautiful! I can't wait to kiss his red little spitty-up face!

Best advice I ever heard regarding parenting is that you should ALWAYS expect the unexpected with your children.

Yeah, I know, that leaves it wide open to anything under the sun happening...and it does!

Look on the bright side!

He's sitting up very well and holding his head up all by himself! No matter what is happening on the outside, at least you know the inside is growing at a fast rate of speed! :)

Awww, poor little guy. I hope he gets to feeling better!

Btw, one of the babies I watch also had a rash, but it was all over his body. It cleared up in about a month, so I would be worried about your little one. This to shall pass!
