I have had a stressful weekend, and am dealing with 2 sick kids. It seems that every single year just as the weather changes from pleasantly warm to cold, someone always gets a cold, despite all of the hand washing, Lysol spraying, etc. Well, my 11 year old is feeling pretty miserable and has a horrible stuffy nose, cough, and a mild fever. Luckily, the pediatrician just informed me that it's more than likely just a bad cold that's going around like wildfire here in Virginia. I have kept him home from school today so he can rest, and I have to attend to him today since he's not feeling 100% at all.
On top of that, Xander, my 9 month old has a slight cold, too. He is sneezy and isn't sleeping as well as he normally does. To make matters worse, he is in the process of cutting 5 teeth! Normally, teething doesn't really bother him (lucky me!) but paired with the cold, he's a bit fussy, so he's been needing a lot of Mommy Snuggles lately.
We're probably not going Trick-Or-Treating tonight, which is a disappointment. I just cannot take the kids out when they're not feeling well. So we will all be dressing up, staying home, and passing out candy to all of the neighborhood ghouls and goblins. In the meantime, I am working on posts every spare moment I get. So keep an eye out for more Win Your Gifts sponsor spotlight posts. I have saved the best for last!
Hoping everyone has a Happy Halloween!
