Taking care a growing child is SUPER.TOUGH.
I have to admit.
I really thought it couldn't get tougher than it is but it did. Especially when they got sick.
Oh dear. The worry. The laundry. The throw-ups. The I-don't-wan't-to-eat-anything-I-want-mommy's-breast-only. The upsets. The clingy-ness. And everything in between oh the horror.
Mostly it's really sad seeing your lil one so helpless not able to breathe properly because of the accumulated flu and mucus. As a mom we really wished we can suck them all out from that tiny nose and make it all go better.
Baby Wil have been sick for almost 2 weeks now. The first week he caught a virus from the nursery. Then he was okay for a few days all chirpy and giddy ready to play. But then caught an even worst virus after we got back from visiting my cousin in sheffield. Her kids were sick at that time. I honestly got it now why some mothers can be super protective that they refused to let their kids get in close contact with even a slight sick person. I foresee myself being that kind of a person in the future. No way I'm gonna let my baby get near a sick person.
*sigh. I'm no fun anymore.
The GP told me that it's okay for a baby to be sick with common cold. It's part of growing up and building their immune system. But I guess no mom wants to see their kids sick right? So we shall try our best to take care.
Motherhood teaches you a lot of things.
Because right now it teaches me to be patient.
