On The Mend

Well, after a full week of sick baby, complete with snotty nose, coughing, fever, endless hours of crying, (mostly from him) days without food, nursing strikes, 2 hour baseball practices and games everyday in the cold, and a husband that was out of town, this is the happy face that greeted me this morning.

The first morning his daddy was home. Why does it always seem to work that way?! But no matter. I'm just glad to see a smile on his face. And I'm not praying for him to pass out so I can have a MOMENT!!

And I just wanted to say to the nosey grandma at lil Monte's game last night....yes I know his ears need to be covered. I have been putting his hat back on his head every 3 seconds when he pulls it off. And, no it's not just his teeth. He has been sick. He is my 3rd child and I think I would know. So back away before he sneezes in your face.

Oh, you know they do that when Daddy's around so that it looks soooo easy and there's NO REASON mommy should complain. Arg! It's a conspiracy I tell you!!

I had a lady stop us while we were walking one time and take Gray's hood HERSELF and put it on his head. (To which of course he pulled it right back down.) HOW RUDE!

Why on earth can't people just keep. their. mouths. shut? I was recently told by a relative (several times, in fact) that Caden has a big head. Then, yesterday, after sharing some pictures via Shutterfly with friends and family, a friend wrote back commenting on his "big head." The pediatrician had NEVER commented on his head being disproportionate with the rest of his body, or unusually large. Really, how hard is it to keep thy thoughts to thyself? Okay, end of rant. I'm so glad your little guy is feeling better!

Great picture!
I have yet to have a stranger give me unsolicited advice, I can't imagine what I would say...

So happy your baby is back!

Glad he's feeling better. We had a couple of weeks of sickies and once the baby finally got over it, it was like we had a whole new baby.

I was once taking a walk with my oldest when he was a baby while it was a little chilly out (probably around 45 or 50 degrees). One of those nosey grandma types drove by in her car, pulled over and offered me a ride back to my house so I could "get that baby out of the cold". Um, no. Walking home in the chilly weather with him all bundled up is much safer than riding in a stranger's car with no car seat. Thanks anyway.

Ha! Those grannies would go crazy here! The idea of dressing warmly is not a concept in the Scottish mind and they don't dress their kids warm either. They are born with some pretty thick blood here. Once we were visiting a sea-side town in October. We were bundled up, but there were families on the beach and the kids were SWIMMING! This is the sea, not a wee lake that could still be a little warm from the summer.
