today was probably the hardest day of parenting cooper that i have had thus far.
as i've already whined about, cooper caught the virus and has been the unhappiest camper around.
the first day was absolutely pitiful. high fever, whimpering, but no screaming, or even crying really.
yesterday there was a little fever but a few smiles, so we were on the mend!
today... WHAT HAPPENED TO MY CHILD?
seriously, though. what happened?
no fever, a few smiles in the morning, non-stop crying and screaming at me the rest of the day. he wouldn't let me out of his sight. he wouldn't sit in his high chair to eat. he didn't want to play. he didn't want to be outside. he didn't want to be rocked. he didn't want a bath. he didn't want to unravel toilet paper OR play with door jams. extremely unusual.
i never leave him except to go to school but i was close to trying to hire a babysitter with my food money for the week and going to float in the pool until after he was sound asleep. i think that sounds mean but guys, GUYS, this day was unreal.
i should have known it would be like this because as soon as i rolled out of bed and put my bagel in the toaster i burnt my finger. and then i cut my leg shaving which never happens. what i want to know is what did i do to deserve this bad karma. karma, i'm sorry. forgive me?
tomorrow can't possibly be worse. so here's to tomorrow.
