it’s all a phase…

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.

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.

    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.

    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…)
