Living life in the carpool lane..

Christmas 2012 recap..

Posted on: December 28, 2012

So my little break took a little longer than expected.  It’s no joke that life with a toddler is very unpredictable.  My blogging break is a testament to that.

Our Christmas plans were simple.  We’d be up at my parents house starting on Sunday.  Then we’d go to Mass for Christmas Vigil on the 24th.  We’d wake up early the next day and head out to my cousins house to spend all of Christmas day there.   Then M and I would stay at my parents house until the new year.

But then, Sunday at lunch, it started…

M started sneezing a little bit more than usual.. and her nose was just barely starting to run..

By the time we got home from Mass, she didn’t want to eat much.  She didn’t even want curly fries from Jack in the Box!  She LOVES the curly fries from Jack. 

Her nose turned into a faucet, and she was running a fever.

Not good.

That night, she was miserable.  She tossed and turned.  Neither of us had a good nights sleep.  She also ended up with a fever of 102 at 4 o’clock in the morning.

Not good at all.

A high fever has so far meant an ear infection for her.. never fails… 100% of the time she gets a fever of 101 or higher, it’s an ear infection.

On Christmas day, instead of getting into the car to head off to my cousins house.  We were getting into the car to head off to the local urgent care.  Sure enough, it was an ear infection.. in BOTH ears this time. 

At the same time, my mother started feeling under the weather. 

In order to allow everyone to get the proper rest and keep all the germs separated, I made the decision to go back home instead of staying at my parents house for the rest of the week. 

I had blogged earlier about how I had no more days off left.  However, mommy duties take priority and I took the 26th off of work to take care of M.  She was extremely clingy and I wanted to make sure I was there to comfort her and look after her.

Thankfully, she’s been getting better and better as the days are going by.  The nose is still a little stuffy and runny.  She isn’t as cranky anymore.

She’s started to laugh and run around again.

I’ve never been so happy to see toys scattered around everywhere..

I hope you all had a great Christmas.
