Mini Rant Part Five

This week was a little tougher than my average week.
Nate has had a concoction of a cough, cold and ear infection.
To add to the fact that he hasn’t been in preschool all week, he has also been up all night, every night for the past five nights.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
That is the only way to describe how I’m feeling at the moment.
I’m totally exhausted but even more than that I feel awful for Nate as he’s been extremely uncomfortable.
That’s the strange part about being a parent.
No matter how bad things are for me, if my kids are even mildly uncomfortable I automatically find the strength to help them get to a more comfortable place before I can even begin to worry about trivial things like “lack of sleep”.
The long weekend has now arrived and we will be spending most of it indoors trying to get rid of this insane virus that has been plaguing our household throughout this miserable winter.
On a brighter note, Nate said the cutest thing today.
While I was battling him to go for a nap he turned to me, in my bed nonetheless, and said:
“Ima, can I please go get my monkey?” (He is referring to Curious George)
I said yes and he ran off to his room to bring his buddy for a nap.
This is the first time in three years that he has shown any attachment to a stuffed animal.
In actuality it is his favorite fictional character and I should know as I’ve fallen victim to reading five Curious George stories in a row many a time.
Happy all sorts of holidays to you all and please wish us luck with this weekend!
