I love to see my kids happy! My kids are pretty easy to please and so the littlest things will produce the biggest smiles. Last week when we went to the grocery store, we decided to put my 10 month old baby in the car cart instead of having him ride in his car seat. He LOVED it. You could tell from his smile he was so proud of himself for sitting up and riding like a big boy. He loved sitting by his brother and steering the cart. It was a super happy moment!
I hate when my kids get sick. Fevers are the worst. I have been a Mom for 8 years and fevers still scare me! Last year my then 3 year old was very sick it was a very scary time. He hadn’t been feeling well and so we cuddle on the couch and watched TV for most of the day. I had him take a nap in the afternoon and when he woke up he was on fire! He was so hot, so I got out the thermometer. I decided to go for accuracy so up the bum it went. He was so sick he didn’t even cry or fight me putting it there. Once the thermometer hit 104 I threw it to the side and ran to get him ready to go to the ER. I’ve heard my whole life about high temperatures scrambling kids’ brains and all sorts of dangers from a high temperature so I was scared! Luckily my husband walked in the door as I was putting shoes on his feet and told him we were heading the ER right NOW! I dropped my daughter off at a friend’s house on the way to the hospital. Once there they took his temperature, I don’t remember what it was but it was over 104. They doctor told me that these days they don’t care about how high t
he temperature is but what is causing it. He then asked if we had given him medicine. I had given him what I could, but he wouldn’t take it and if I forced it down his throat he would throw up. They got out some suppository acetaminophen and gave it to him. After running tests to find out what was wrong and they brought some chocolate milk to drink. After about an hour of sitting in the ER waiting for test results my son started perking up. We were sitting on the bed watching a cartoon and he started laughing at the show. He was telling me how much he liked the chocolate milk. He was happier and perkier. It was such a relief to see his smile return!
