Sick little ones

Tending to a sick little one is so hard for me.

All day yesterday and all day today I've wanted to cuddle him, but he kept refusing, saying he only wanted Mommy. But Mommy was in the office, working.

Finally he fell asleep on the ottoman and, knowing his mom would be coming out to take him to the doctor, I propped him up on my lap to sleep, hoping to ease his breathing.

It's so frustrating! There's nothing I can do except watch over him, get his meds down him, encourage him to sleep and eat little bits of something... and wait. Time will heal.

(sigh...)

It's so hard when the little ones get sick. If sympathy would heal they would be well in a minute. We always have plenty of that.
