Haiku Sickness

My poor Little Man
What am I going to do?
How can I help you?

Nursing is so hard
Up all hours of the night
Hard to breathe and suck

Snot out the wazoo
Running, running, running. DRIP!
Down your nose, now mouth

Past your lips, to chin
I want to wipe it all up
You scream if I do

Feel so bad for you
We will have to wait it out
Cold meds are no good

Bad for you, your heart
So you will have to suffer
This season of snot.

It's Haiku Friday.

The meds seem to be kicking in, ear pulling is waning, fever appears to be gone, and he SLEPT!! The boy SLEPT!! For hours at a time!! Happy Day! I think it did him a world of good. And Mama, too. Things are looking up at Casa de Cracker. I think Little Man is on the mend. Whoopee!

Not sure how I found your blog but my little guy is fighting ear infections this week too :( It's no fun at all. We're on prescription no. 2. First one didn't work. Good luck and hope he's better this weekend :)

Toni said...

The Conqueror is ill, too. He still is NOT sleeping, tho. Is a virus or maybe asthma, ped said. Great! Fingers crossed both are better soon... Sleep well, Little Man and VDog! (:

Oh the agony of sick babies.

Love the haikus -- I feel for your plight though... mine began today. At least my son is old enough to walk himself to the bathroom to throw up these days.

Great haikus. I had thought that I'd commented, but then saw that the link was a different color.
Love you!!!
