Had our first full night's sleep in five days last night. Yes, that means that Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday night and Monday night were very, very poor nights of constantly interrupted sleep. If the Little Dude and I slept at all it was in 45 minute intervals, bookended by 15-20 minute coughing fits. It was rotten. But last night. Oh, last night we slept the whole. night. through. And it was glorious. I did not feel he was well enough to send him off to school today, but he was much improved and even ate some dinner. Five meatballs, two beans, a potato wedge and a spoon full of peas! Which is awesome, since over the last four days he's basically eaten only cornflakes with rice milk and the occasional half a popsicle. Its been rough. I'm telling you, it freaks me out when he won't eat.
Anyhow, I very much look forward to a good sleep again tonight (fingers crossed) and I promise, as soon as he is ship shape again I will do my best to keep the blog from being so boringly about the minutiae of my kid's health and diet.
Oh, and I just have to write this down before I forget it. After three or four days of lovely, spring like weather it rained and rained today. And while we were sitting having dinner, it got colder and that rain turned to snow. At first just little, sparse flakes, but eventually these big, lush, swirling flakes that landed on the balcony with an almost audible "plaff". Hubs and I tut tutted about it momentarily, and then went on eating dinner. But a few minutes later, the Baby turns around in his chair and points out the window. "No! No!" he says. I looked up to see what he was objecting to and saw him seeing the flakes. "Yeah Baby, I know" I said, "that's Snow." "NO!" he exclaimed, "Me no like dat!" and then he burst into tears, "No Snow! go 'way! No winner time! I go outside!" It was the saddest cute thing ever. He's been loving to go outside with me to hang laundry, in his rubber boots and spring jacket, and it looked like he was seeing all his fun times disappear under a fresh layer of snow.
I think that's how we are all feeling these days. Hurry up spring. Come here to stay.
