We Decided To Call In Sick

Yesterday, Little Man and I had had enough. We really needed a break from our busy stay-at-home schedule. So we took a sick day. That's right, we're allowed. I think we have five left for the rest of the year. We better use them wisely!

Seriously though, Little Man was rockin' a wicked fever, which was causing him to want to ditch out of the office altogether. No phone calls or faxes to return. No, it was all PJ's all day for the Little Prince and his Queen Mommy.

Luxuriating in bed nursing (yes, we have finally mastered that! Woohoo!!), lazing around the house, having a nibble of food here and there. Despite the screaming that punctuated the early morning, it was a very nice way to spend the day indeed. And a day of rest was just what we both needed -- recharged the batteries, you know?

We both felt better (not 100% though) and more well rested by the late afternoon. I am hoping that the time off has cured what ails him. If not, we may just have to take a half day today.

We go to check in with the cardiologist this afternoon. Wish us luck!

Nursing in bed is niiiiiiice. You can only hope he falls asleep and you can just lie there and watch Regis & Kelly.
All the best at your appt!

I haven't yet figured out nursing in bed - I tried in the beginning with both boys, but just ended up propping myself up and hurting my back - so I just fall asleep in the rocking chair.
Sorry to hear the Little Man isn't feeling well - I hope it clears soon. We've been sick here too - I'd say it's the weather, but I'm sure our weather is very different!
Get well!

Hope you are both MUCH better - don't forget that you can always use those precious "sick days" when you need a mental health day! :)
