Playing Mumma Nurse...

Baby girl has a cold. This means a lot of indoor time. A lot of cuddles. A lot of "rod-for-my-own-back-making" naps on my lap. Blocked up and off her food has meant a glimpse back to her newborn days of endless breastfeeding sessions.

In short, this week, I've got down time.

Notes (lessons) on her first proper "illness":

i. It must be AWFUL to have a cold and not be able to blow your nose. AWFUL!

ii. Euna resembles a ferret having it's teeth brushed when you try and wipe her nose. She HATES it.

iii. I now get why my Dad used to always say "I wish I could have it for you". At the time I thought "IDIOT! He MUST be lying, no sane person would inflict this upon themselves voluntarily!!" Turns out you would for your kids. Ten fold.

iv. Nothing works. Not really. Not significantly. The only thing capsules, drops, rubs, oils, nasal sprays and syrups achieve is making you feel like you've done something.

v. Calpol is STILL yummy at 28. Is there a Mum out there who can HONESTLY say they don't lick the spoon after administering a dose?

So in attempt to escape total cabin fever we've tried (in vain) to blow these germs away with cool, crisp Novemeber air... Winter is coming...

OH! But BLUE skies...

Leaves falling...

Leaves fallen...

Walking...

Twigs...

 Self-portraits... Of course this was the ONLY one I took... Didn't take about 60 pictures of the floor in the process... Honest...

Silly...

My snot-bot...

Winter sun is my FAVOURITE...

 NEEEEOOOOOWWWWWNNNN...

Back in the warm...

  10. I agree; nothing worse than a sick child. Even though my girls are eighteen and nearly fourteen, it still breaks my heart. One of them gets her monthly so bad she is physically ill a couple of times a year. I could just cry for her. Such beautiful winter pics! Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. Hi Susan! Thank you! Yes she is muuuuch better and such a relief! It's weird how you respond as a mother when they're ill, I didn't really realise but it's really dragged me down seeing her poorly, you just to take it away and see them giggle again! So glad you enjoyed the pictures too, thanks for the comment :D Happy Sunday :D

    heads up and let you know a few of the images
