Sick baby + Sick mommy = no energy

So I am happy to say, that my daughter is 17, well almost 18 months old, and she has been a relatively healthy baby (thank you God!).

Well,... up until about 3 weeks ago. We had a visit from the Monster of ALL viruses enter our house. And sneak into her precious little body... and bring us down. BIG TIME.

It all started with a very cranky sleepless night of fever. Followed by a doctor visit. Followed by many more sleepless nights.  Followed by more fevers and days on end of diareah, and Pedialyte. Then we ended up at Urgent Care.

And just as Baby K began to sleep better, and eat better, and giggle more....This Monster virus, entered into mommy's body.

And continued to beat me down.

The more Baby K gained her strength and energy, the more mine decreased.

If you think its hard to be so, so, tired from having a sick baby that cant sleep and wont stop crying...that is nothing compared to having a bubbly smiling energy ball that wants nothing more than to take you by the hand and drag you from room to room when you simply just want to crawl back in bed and do nothing....

It was a rough 3 weeks. Antibiotics for her, followed by antibiotics for me and now we are on the home stretch to being back to our normal healthy selves.

If you are struggling with one of the nasty bugs going around, hugs to you!
