I called out of work today. When I woke up my throat was on fire. I begged Jeramy to be the one to go get Simon when we began to hear him fuss over the baby monitor.
Jeramy found Simon standing in his crib, covered in snot down to his chin. My poor little guy.
So today we have relaxed the rules and allowed lots of cheerios and lots of watching Elmo. I went ahead and said yes to seconds, and then thirds when he requested them at breakfast. We will probably read a lot of books together, and color piles of pictures. Tonight, I will give him a nice bath to help loosen up the congestion and ease the achy muscles. Dinner will be something comforting and vitamin rich, like a nice soup or casserole. Jeramy will be sent off to the store with a list, including some ingredients for these popsicles.
A day of pajamas, and snuggles, and tissues, and tea.
