See I get all philosophical and go on about a thing that I feel is important (and non adoption related) and you all leave me hanging. I’m good with that. It wasn’t really a comment worthy post anyway. Hell, who am I kidding. Most of my stuff isn’t comment worthy to begin with.
I want to thank everyone who ordered Sweet Hope Truffles and Caramels. We didn’t quite make our initial goal, but we came pretty close. Now we just need someone to give the money to. We haven’t had any applicants yet. As always I am sure I will have a few extra boxes of truffles that will go on sale after I get the batches made. So look for some last minute sales.
In the really important stuff, we were awakened last night by what sounded like a wild animal barking in the next room followed by cries from our child. Sho nuf, the boy can cry in the middle of the night when he’s sick. The pollen count around these parts has been off the charts in the last few weeks. So we thought he was having a bit of trouble with allergies, like Mama. Little bit of a cough yesterday and just generally stuffy. I gave him a bit of benadryl before bed and he was out like a light. That is until 12:30. My poor sweet baby started hacking up his right lung and it scared the hell out of him and us. Within 2 seconds the trusty husband was up and out of the bed and scooped the boy out of bed. Dear lord the child was burning up. After we determined that our forehead thermometer sucks and that you have to really cram the ear one way in there we finally got an accurate temperature on the kid. 101. Poor kid was shivering like crazy. Once he calmed down we got him into bed with us. From there he proceeded to sleep all the while kicking, smacking and scratching us. Not on purpose of course. So at least someone got a 1/2 way decent nights sleep in this house.
At this point I don’t know whether to give in to the exhaustion or to be totally and utterly elated that my child actually cried out in the night. We are talking monumental step here people. 7 months and this child has never done this.
The good news is, he is feeling better and his fever went down this morning. He still sounds like a dying seal, but it doesn’t seem to be slowing him down at all.
