I can’t deny it…Hen is the apple of my eye. He is on my mind 100% of the time and ALWAYS brings a smile to my face and a tear to my eye when I think of his sweet face.
I found out this week that the apple of your eye can also be a stye!
Between the following:
- sleepless nights – no amount of coffee and concealer can hide the obviousness of the lack of zzzzzzs happening in our household right now.
- no naps – our adventurous, curious, curly-haired babe hasn’t napped so hasn’t been able to “recharge.”
- no appetite – all of the snacks and nutritious meals end up on the “just mopped” floor.
…the past few days have been more stressful than most.
Finally! An answer!
After a few more nap strikes and sleepless nights, we made the decision to take Henry to the pediatrician. I’m glad we did because he has a double ear infection and is now on antibiotics. Man! What a tough, little guy. He has been fussy and clingy over the past few days on top of not sleeping or napping so I just chalked it up to a phase. Well, now I know that it isn’t a phase. He was in pain and suffering and trying to communicate it to me.
How could I have not known? I feel awful!
99% of the time, I feel I am ROCKING this #motherhood thing but then things like this happen and it makes me question EVERYTHING.
I am not perfect. I will make mistakes. I can only do my best.
But the silver lining is that Hen and I had two hours of “us” time today while we went to the doctor. He even humored me and acted like a kid model so that I could post his photo on the blog and brag about how beautiful and perfect he is – because, after all, HE IS!
