This little guy had been feeling a little under the weather last week and was dealing with a runny nose. This past weekend his cold really hit and today will be his second day home from daycare (let’s not even discuss how hard it is to stomach paying for daycare when he isn’t there…). These sick days, where his normally big, round eyes are turned downwards, are one of the most helpless feeling times as a parent. But when he’s constantly climbing into our laps, or wanting to be picked up and snuggled, I’m secretly thankful for the attention, because it won’t last forever.
And if he always looks this sweet when he’s sick, then, well, we’ll get through just fine.
