Oscar is sick. He was all super drippy snotty yesterday morning and then by afternoon was burning up with a fever of 102. Turns out he thinks Baby Tylenol is liquid candy so that was easy. I thought he’d make it through the night ok and was surprised when he woke up at midnight all hot and whiney. Oscar rarely gets sick and this is his highest fever yet. So of course we had to go digging out all the baby books, get online, rule everything out. He went back to sleep after some more liquid candy and much canoodling. But it didn’t stick and I was up quite a few times last night and am kinda loopy this morning. How quickly one forgets about the middle of the night waking business. So because he’s a sicky icky we’ve got the car today. I took him for a big long drive instead of his usual morning walk to the playground. We drove all the way out to Mitsuwa for a get-better treat. Ran into the neighbor on the way in and she suggested mint tea for Oscar. But I went with the chocolate cream filled panda pastry instead. I’m *that* mom. It’s been all binkies, cookies, tv, milk out of bottles instead of big boy sippy cups. That’s the only good part of being all hot and sick – getting all the good stuff you want!
p.s. don’t worry Tim
