Well it finally happened. Took 20 months or so but little man just got sick for the first time. Got the full package too: coughing, runny nose, and fever. Guess he decided to go with the “gift pack.”
I’d like to think his sick free run is partly my doing. I actually don’t really get sick. I think I’ve only been sick maybe twice in the last 20 years or so. Usually if I feel something coming on, all I have to do is flex my one arm muscle and it scares off any sick germs hanging around.
It is definitely a little bit scary though when your mini-me gets sick. The fever scared me the most. He hit 103.8 at one point. The doctor seemed pretty nonchalant about it which both helped and made it worse (if that makes sense). It’s amazing how the entire person of your child changes when they are sick. You can just see it in their face and body language.
Luckily it only lasted a couple days and with minor sleep disruption. I’ll be honest though, if it leaked into day 3, I was totally gonna flex that arm muscle and save the day. We never got that far…that fever got lucky! He’s better now and we’ve been able to finally get back outside on our daily walks. Just us three out on the open road…living off the land…and maybe cheese crackers 😜
