Some Days I Wish I Were A Coffee Drinker

I don’t drink coffee, but, some days I certainly understand the inclination. The standard early school year cooties are making their rounds around our house. It is currently Anna’s turn and this one has hit her pretty hard. It takes a lot to get My little sunshine down so I know when she spends all day whining and looks miserable that she really isn’t feeling well at all.

Yesterday all she wanted to do was sit on my lap. Napping was a challenge since she couldn’t breath so she was tired and sick all day long.


But, if I thought yesterday was bad it has nothing on today. Anna was up every hour last night crying. It really irritates her when her sleep is disrupted, especially by a stuffy nose. This morning she woke with a fever and has no desire to be put down. A little Tylenol has helped bring the fever down and my ERGO baby carrier has been a godsend.



A day like today calls for coffee but since I don’t drink coffee I had a salted caramel hot chocolate instead…mmmmm.

Today I am thankful for baby wearing, Starbuck’s on every corner and the small relief offered my sweet girl by children’s tylenol. Tomorrow will hopefully find us better rested and healthier.

  1. We had the same problem with my kiddo. Turns out she didn’t just have a cold, she also had an ear infection. It made it impossible for her to sleep unless her head was elevated. The pediatrician at the urgent care center (yes, my kid is one of those kids who waits until Friday evening to wail her head off about her ears) sent us home with antibiotics to be started right away (“Otherwise none of you will get any sleep tonight”).
