Logan is down with a fever and stuffy nose. Logan doesn’t usually get sick so this is rare. Heck, he avoided the stomach bug that hit the entire house, including the dogs. When they have a cold they stay out of school, I go to work, and they go to Mema’s and snuggle on the couch. Mema’s makes them egg-drop soup and all is dandy. Then I sit in my office feeling guilty all day. Logan spiked a high fever last night and I think he was awake all night. I snuggled the little human furnace all night. At one point he muttered “Dragonfly I need a tissue please?” I guess my new nickname is Dragonfly. He woke still with a fever so I called out of work.
Although my little man is sick I am kind of enjoying this. Me and the three boys got to snuggle in my bed together this morning and watch Little Einsteins. This takes me back to when Logan was a toddler, he just loved those Little Einsteins. Having Logan in bed sick also equals less shouting. He’s just relaxing. No arguing between the boys. It’s just been a mellow day. Some TV, some drawing, and some books. Deacon’s painting rocks and Finn is coloring dinosaurs.
So even though I am sad that my little guy isn’t feeling well, I’m savoring every minute of it. The snuggles, the “I love you”s, and the extra tending to I get to do. I guess it’s nice to feel so needed by the oldest one. They grow so fast. He even made me a “thank you for taking care of me” picture. I just love him to pieces!
