Being achey, sneezy, coughing sick is never fun for anyone but as a mom, watching your little one go through those symptoms of being miserable because of a fever (and temperature related crankiness!) is just heartbreaking.
We want their days to be overflowing with laughter and learning and play dates with many friends (despite the gray hair that may come along with that!) and siblings not blankets covering their bodies and missed days of fun filled activities.
On days like those, all you can do when they feel like that is give them TYLENOL® and hope they nap out some of their aches and pains and look forward to seeing their feeling better smile. The smile that means they are back to their usual curious selves!
There have been two times recently where my youngest went from being his happy, playful self to a warm ball of miserable. The first, when his molars were starting to come in. He just wasn’t himself and the fever he got with that didn’t help the toddler toothache.
And another time, he caught a cold and just wanted to nap on the sofa with a cherished plush toy and the blanket of his choice. He would wake and want to lay on me and watch cartoons with me. That was his way to find comfort while he didn’t feel well.
I was so happy when I saw he was feeling better and he shared his smile with me and his siblings. His smiling face is one we love waking up and seeing and it is always hard for me when he isn’t feeling like himself.
