First Little Cold

Friday, September 6, 2013

What a rough first week. Actually for me, getting back to work was fine except for being a little tired. This morning, Iris woke up at 4am and was babbling and kicking her legs and flailing her arms until 5:30am. She really didn’t want to go back to sleep. After she did finally fall asleep, she slept until almost 8:30am.

Then she had her rough day with a little cold. A runny nose with probably a sore throat. She kept on gulping and struggling while drinking milk with Annie today. She looked a little groggy most of the evening.

Simon had been a little sick last weekend with a sore throat. Then with all the crying, his throat hasn’t been able to heal and he’s been hoarse. Plus he or I could’ve picked up germs from other kids. I also have a bit of a sore throat :(. Vitamin C to the rescue!

When I picked up Simon from school, he was whimpering while listening to a story being read by the teacher. At least not outright crying. The teacher was kinder today but still kept on pointing out that he wouldn’t stop crying. But I think he was a little better today because Ron let him bring Ziggy to school today. He was still tired though and fell asleep briefly in the car but at least a little smiley when we got home.

Then we told him we were going to Chuck E Cheese for dinner. Yay!

Tired eyes Iris.

Happy Simon at Chuck E Cheese.

All tired out from a long day. Iris finally fell asleep on the ride home but only slept for about 30 minutes before getting a bath and to bed. She fell asleep by herself after watching her mobile and sucking her thumb. I was surprised she fell asleep as she usually requires more comforting when she is uncomfortable.

I am glad it’s the weekend. We can all try to make up on missed sleep!
