The Apple of My Eye

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!
