A Sick/Work Day

It is a rather blustery day outside and inside today. I had a lot of ambishous plans for this Monday, ready to conquer the math drills, spelling tests, reading alouds, training, and nurturing but today's plans have been detoured. Last night Superman and T-Rex struggled for their rest between the continual cough attacks. I tried to drown them out but couldn't and ended up trying sleep with one little to help soothe him back to sleep. This morning I found one of them to be a real sickling. I have taken him under my wing encouraging wellness and comfort. Right now he is bunked in his bed with books, magazines and his Pirates of the Carribean cd player. I know he doesn't feel good when he forfeits all rights to play and when I see his painful red rimmed eyes.

So, today I will be nursing my little sickling back to good health and taking a work day for myself while I tackle the play demands of a child left behind and a baby in desperate need of all my attention!

What a blessing to be able to be there for them... ALL DAY... to love on and care for them! But it's even more fun to be with them when they are NOT sick.

As to the cough, try some Vicks or other kind of vapor rub on the bottom of their feet before bed tonight and cover with socks. It works for us!

I hope everyone is better today, Kelli! You are such a devoted mother and they will benefit SO greatly from your loving care. Praying for you and your family,

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. Superman is still sick but a little better and last night they both slept with out coughing, praise God! Thanks for your prayers.

JOYfully in Him,

I am glad they are better. I completely forgot about the Vicks but it works for us as well. My eldest cant wear socks with it because it makes her feet too hot but we rub it on anyway and get a full night of restful sleep! I'll keep praying that they are all better soon!
