sick town

Being sick in the past meant cozying up on the couch and watching endless romantic comedies while drinking tea.  It was stinky but it gave you a pass from taking showers and looking like a normal human being.  Being sick with a baby is another story all together.  It is hard and challenging and down right awful!  This past week I got a bug.  And I can tell you exactly who gave it to me.  A client last Thursday sat in my chair with an awful cough and bright red nose.  Right away I thought about putting on a face mask and wondering if that would be professional.  I know getting your hair done is fun and we all look forward to the head massage but when you're sick please, Stay At Home!  I got home a started chugging airborn and emergenC  hoping to beat the germs out of me.  Sadly they won.  Saturday after work I started to feel tired and I knew what was happening.  I was getting sick.

And to tell you the truth I was more scared I was going to give it to Quinne than actually being sick.  The thought of her being sick and not understanding would break my heart.  I laid on the floor wherever she was covered in a blanket and tissues stuffed up my nose.  Pretending to 'play' with her.  My throat hurt so bad I think I consumed about 23 cough drops.  Which in turned made my stomach upset.  It was a sad few days:(  Luckly David was home for part of my illness and could take care of me and a wild little baby.  I got to watch a movie in bed which was amazing!  We don't have a tv in our room so David hooked up our computer and I was able to Netflix the afternoon away.  I missed Quinne so much.  Even though I was right there I was a mom zombie and missed rolling around with her and kissing her to no end.  It is almost impossible to resist kissing  her perfect cheeks!

I am thankful to be better this evening.  Thankful I get to make up for all the missed kisses.  I think it's safe to say Quinne has permanent lip prints on her face!
