We’re having a sick day for the baby today. Poor sad toddler; I’ve been lucky that for her, this is only the second time she’s been sick. Doesn’t she look like she feels betrayed? Like, “I didn’t know I could feel this bad!”
What are your cure-alls for sick kids? It seems like every family has something that you just DO when you are sick. If you’re a sick kid in our house you are guaranteed to hear, “Oh, maybe you should take a hot bath, I bet that will make you feel better.” and “Have you taken Vitamin C?” These were the sure bets when I was a kid too, so partly, regardless of how my kids feel about it, I think I am ingrained to think mothering sick kids means you give them a bath and you give them Vitamin C!
For this one-year old a sick day means lots of nursing, lots of napping and a probably a bath too…and a Vitamin C drink if she’ll take it!
