Summer Cold

You wake
With a cough
Too hot
Cozy on the couch
Blanket and pillow
More juice
We move through the day
Time for bed
Tired boy
You fall right to sleep
You wake coughing and crying, again
I move you to our bed and lie with you
Mommy's here
I kiss your forehead to check your temperature
Still hot
I kiss you again
Just because
You cough
You cry
So tired
I comfort
I love you

we have 3 summer colds and an ear infection this week. I hate it when they are sick in the summer!
Hope your little guy feels better soon.

Much health to your little one and much strength to the Mommy... My daughter has a cough and high temperature quite often and I feel so tiny and helpless each time when I can do nothing to help her AT ONCE...

Somedays you just gotta sit on the sidelines. Take it easy- you'll be back in the game before you know it!

That brought tears to my eyes. Hope he's feeling better now.
