The Warwick household has been hit with illness! Hubs has shingles and we suspect that William might now have chicken pox.
The boy could give the human torch a run for his money he’s that hot. Naturally getting him to take his medicine is a battle, heaven forbid he just take it and feel better.
Seeing my baby boy poorly does unusual things to me. I feel I’m now stuck in fight mode and will kill ANYONE if it helps my boy feel better. Even though he currently wants nothing to do with me, and is snuggled with his dad. This is also killing me, as I can’t shake ‘I’m the Mummy, I make him feel better’ mentality.
As for Bump, Bump is totally safe as I’ve had chicken pox before. Although the thoughtful foetus made he feel bloody awful yesterday so I don’t feel left out of the poorly club.
Usually possessing the organisational skills that allow me to get up on time(ish) and nothing more, I now have detailed records of temperature, food eaten, drinks drank, medicine taken and appearance at various points throughout the day. This will continue until he is back to full health.
Much to our relief he’s finally drinking but I expect we have a couple of days of blankets, tv and cuddles.
The Bump Chronicles
The time has come to but bigger pants, I have a permanent wedgie.
I have started knitting a blanket for baby, if my track record is anything to go by, it should be ready by the time bump starts school.
I am 15 weeks today!
