The Parenting Hat: Hand, Foot and You Guessed It. Mouth.

This sounds like a made up virus; but it’s real. Oh, so real. We’ve got hand, foot and mouth over here (again) – this time it’s Colton who has the virus. This virus is a real pain because a) there is nothing you can do about it b) it hurts him. bad. c) he can’t go to daycare for 5-7 days.

Now for the fun part? He doesn’t sleep. Can’t eat. And only wants his mom (well, that’s the good part, actually). Here is my love bug at the doctor with me and dad today. He’s still such a darling, isn’t he? What’s that giant yellow thing you ask? That’s his toy moose. I was jumping up and down like a crazy person waving this moose, trying to get a smile out of this sick little boy.

photoPS – He gets whatever he wants today. Whenever he wants it. This means extra kisses and hugs from mom and dad and attention 24/7.

    1. Thanks girl! Yes, it’s not fun for sure. Worst part is there is no cure, just wait it out with Tylenol and Motrin.
