One Sick Boy

November 3rd, 2011 by zoe No Comments

We are a bit feverish and illin’ around here. Oddly enough a high fever and hacking cough seems to be bringing out the charm in my sick boy. As in a 3 am bedside manner that goes something like this – “Excuse me Momma, my fever is back, can you please give me some more medicine?”

I am sure the foot stomping will resume as soon as he gets his spitfire sparkle back.

In the meantime we are snuggled on the sofa in the back room and I am reading actual NOVELS while he sleeps on my chest. Four years seemed to washed away and he is again an infant in my arms with pure sweetness. Having twins I relish these moments when there is simply one childs needs to meet – these rare moments of a calm quiet house with just one boy.

Of course – waking up from 3-5 am to  care for a sick kid makes me a total wreck but reading NOVELS all day with a droopy polite child feels like a holiday.
