I will annoy myself.
But I kind of want to do a "Wahhh she's still sick! And I was up 6x last night with her! And she's still getting fevers! And the crying, oh the crying!"
I'll spare you.
So here's my list of things I'm thankful for when dealing with sick-child: (See? bright side.)
-I'm thankful for coffee. For without it, I would be up a creek without a paddle. I need some boost after being up all night with said grouchy toddler.
-I'm thankful for ibuprofen, because tylenol sucks and doesn't work. At all. The few hours of relief it provides a night for painful ears, I am thankful for.
-I'm thankful that getting up lots of times a night again reminded me how I am so.not.ready for another baby. Nope, not yet. I'm not.
-I'm thankful that friends like Jess are always there when I need mom-advice. With four kids, she's pretty much got all the tricks, and I love her for that (and lots of other things). She reminded me this morning that I could make Eme a smoothie (since she won't eat)--and I packed it full of yogurt, fruits, milk, etc--and I got her to drink some. Yay! I will take anything at this point.
-I'm also thankful for friends like Gina, who remind me when I'm in sickies up to my eyeballs, and begin to lose a bit of myself--that I should enter a photo contest. For me. Friends that can encourage you? Are awesome. So thanks, Gina.
So on that note, here's my entry for The Paper Mama's, 'Whatever' photo contest.
