It’s been one of those weekends!!
A grumpy sick toddler + a grumpy newborn + a grumpy sick mummy = a papa bear that has been a superstar all weekend and who must be looking forward to work tomorrow for a little break.
Basically Thursday night the Bear woke up screaming. Proper inconsolable screaming that has you jumping out of bed in a blind panic, then Friday morning she had a rash from head to toe. Off to the doctors we trotted and it seemed it was an allergy; something she ate or came into contact with on Thursday though we have no idea what. Some prescribed antihistamines and calpol and she was feeling a lot better so we headed out to a yesteryear rally on Saturday and to be fair a great time was had by all.
We went with friends we haven’t seen for an age and joined them back at their house for dinner where the Bear had great fun playing with the boys. By the time we got home though my throat was in agony and by the middle of the night that was joined by cold sweats, shivering, aching and more snot than I care to mention.
Needless to say I reckon this is what the Bear has too as she’s been up and down all night since Thursday, sick (as in vomiting), inconsolable and only daddy will do (poor guy). If she feels half as bad as I do then I don’t blame her.
Today (Sunday) was all about daddy again – more on that in a separate planned post – and intermittent feeling great and having fun and then feeling sorry for herself. Both her and me. It must be like living with two women with split personality disorders. Again, poor daddy!
So what will tomorrow being when we’re solo again and daddy is back in work? I have no idea but wish me luck!!
