Rachel washing her hands before preschool
He was pretty inconsolable so I gave him some Advil and then, because he kept saying "It hurts, Mommy" over and over, I called a nurse-mom-friend of mine to get some advice. She helped a lot. When my kids are sick I really wish I was a trained doctor. I convinced Sam to eat a popsicle and, between that and the Advil, he perked right up. He even played some iPad. He looks like he's wearing lipstick in this picture but it was just a really red popsicle.
Then I blogged a bit and decided to go to bed and read. If Sam is still sick today I might just end my "Week In The Life" blogs because another day of sick Sam won't be all that fun to read about. Normally yesterday morning I would have had a couple of hours to myself while Rachel was at preschool (I was going to use it to clean (part of) our house), and then, ideally, Rachel would have napped in the afternoon. However, yesterday did not go as planned, which is the definition of "life."
So tune in tomorrow to see if Rachel went to preschool today and Sam recovered, or if it was another day at home with sick Sam. I'm really hoping it's the former.
