Over 40 mama — Adventures in poop, patience, and first-time parenthood


Parenting a sick kid: #1 in a series

The bug has been sick for the better part of the last 3 days.  Not the scary, run-to-the-hospital kind of sick, but just lots of phlegm and awful hacking cough.  Her spirits seem good, and she has no fever. But man, she is coughing – like a lot.  And not sleeping.  And this of course means WE are not sleeping.  Which might not be terrible when we were 23, but is killin me at 44.

THIS is when we rue spending our 20’s out partying instead of popping out babies.
