When they want to snuggle

Sometime Sunday afternoon when we got home from the Goodnight Moon production R2 started to run fever.

Well he had started to actually run fever on Saturday but it never got any higher than 99 and I gave him some Tylenol and it was fine, matter of fact it never even slowed him down.

But by Sunday it was a different story. Early that evening I checked his temp and it was 101.2. And Monday was no better. 101-102 all day. I never could get the fever to break. Even after alternating between Tylenol and Motrin.

He didn't want to eat and only wanted to play once the medicine had kicked in.

But one thing he did want to do was snuggle. I will take snuggle time any it's offered. I know it's not long from now neither one of my boys will want to snuggle with mama.

R2 and I climbed in my bed and chilled out most of the day. It was nice, even if it was "sick" snuggles.

Even better the laundry fairy came over and did all the clothes. She knew I was needed else where in the house. And Hubs made the most awesome dinner and cleaned the kitchen spotless! Thanks guys it was much appreciated!!

I LOVE sick snuggles.

You just know there's nothing more a sick kid needs than their mama - and we're more than happy to be wanted/ needed.

Do your sick kids talk a lot? When Stink has a fever, he talks and talks and talks. I have to literally tell him, "Buddy, it's okay for you not to talk."

Hope illness and disease is out of your house SOON. Well snuggles are good too.
