Never trust a smooth-running weekend. A moment later everything comes down, starting with a vomiting daughter in the morning who, after not keeping anything inside all morning, fell asleep on the floor for more than two hours. Unfortunately, it wasn’t over afterwards and we had the pleasure to wash her twice tonight (and clean her bed twice. We also dared to switch on the laundry in the basement at night). Today comes the fever. To make it all a bit more fun, the hobbit seems to either have a stomach bug too or he is just growing again. Either way he is crying a lot, especially when he is supposed to drink. Which gets incredibly frustrating. I think my right ear is developing a constant hissing. Yesterday evening and this morning he only agreed to be breastfed while I was standing and constantly swaying. Ah, life is full of challenges.
What I like about sick children is that they tend to sleep more than usual. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence down. Rabenmutter.
But it’s true 🙂 Unfortunately, they sometimes tend to be more grumpy too…
What I would like about Florian being sick (if he will ever get sick) would be that he probably would snuggle up a bit more often than just “never” 😀 He is not really a child looking for body contact. We recently wondered whether he might be autistic. (No, he isn’t, we know that for sure, but he tends to make these back-and-forth movements so well known from “The Mercury Puzzle” when he’s finished with eating…)
I have never seen the Mercury Puzzle so far… But I think he is just overly excited to discover the world around him 🙂
