Kyle and I were hit with runny-nose freight trains yesterday evening. My cold came on like gangbusters. I went from feeling 100% normal to having a full-blown cold (pun intended) within 60 minutes.

Today, running on less sleep than I ideally get, and rocking the runny nose… phew.



Summer colds are silly and unnecessary. I hope this goes away as quickly as it came on!!

We are up in the middle of the night for the first time in weeks. That’s when you really know that kiddo isn’t feeling well.

Our normal has definitely become sleeping through the night, with wakeup time in the morning being quite variable. It is nice to go to bed feeling confident that I’m going to get a decent night’s sleep.

Kiddo’s teeth must really be bugging him to have him up at 1am. He’s now had tylenol and is dozing in my arms. I’m waiting for the telltale limpness that assures me that he’s actually asleep. It has been 30 minutes, which seems like a long time, but I’m guessing that the tylenol needs to fully kick in before sleep can take him.

Poor baby. I wish the pain never touched him.
