When your heart exists outside of your body you will do everything within reason, and some things well outside of reason to keep it from breaking. Of course my son would get sick the day before his first birthday party: that's how we roll. When your baby is sick you will do anything to make it better, climb in the tub with them at two a.m., sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" sixty five times despite realizing you've forgotten about 20% of the words, sleep sitting up with them on your chest because that's the only way they can breathe. Liam is actually in pretty good spirits considering, and we are planning to go ahead with his party tomorrow unless he spikes a fever again. Hopefully he'll be able to sleep a lot today.
Also, new mom tip: if your child is super sensitive like mine and has never encountered sinus drainage before, keep in mind that they may freak out upon swallowing it and throw up all over you. Twice. Just a heads-up. #doctorsinthehouse #liamroger #beingsickisnofun #cuddlesmakeitbetter
