    Sick Babies and Good Books

    September 22, 2010 by Brandy Vencel

    This morning when O. woke up, I didn’t realize he was under the weather, even though he’s been fussy for a few days now. When I had to use the dreaded suction on his nose, I still didn’t realize he was under the weather. And when his voice sounded scratchy and painful, I found myself wondering what was going on.

    But when I hugged him after breakfast, he felt unusually hot. Once I took his temperature, I knew.

    We’ve got a sickly one, we do.

    All of that to say that I’m tired and I’m about to go snuggle down with Life of Pi until naptime is over.

    Which means I probably have ten minutes left, so I better wrap this up quickly.

    Did I mention everything has been behind today?


    Good thing the day is almost over!

    Or, at least, the part without Daddy home is.


    Over on the TRWBB blog, I wrote about giving our children good books, meaning books by Barbara Cooney (among others).

    Oh….I’m so sorry to hear that your kiddos are sick. 🙁 That makes me so sad! I think it’s because they miss me. Yup. I’m pretty sure that’s it.

    I really enjoyed Life of Pi!!! Let me know what you think. I heard that they might make it into a movie, but that was like 2 years ago.
