Sam’s been sneezing all day, and the baby goo has returned. (Sam does not like having his nose wiped. Poor little guy.) He’s also been a bit sleepy & clingy. It’s possible that all this is due to the new teeth (he’s getting at least two), or it could be allergies, or it could be some new germs.
It’s been several weeks since anybody was sick; we’re overdue.
We dosed Sam with…er…something purple (Jennifer knows what it was; perhaps I should have been paying closer attention), and put him to bed a little early. Maybe he’ll feel better in the morning.
(Whenever one of the kids is sick, I usually catch whatever it is he’s got: one of the many burdens of parenthood. All day, I’ve been trying to decide whether I’m sneezing any more frequently than usual. And is that a sore throat getting started, or am I just thirsty? I never used to worry about my health, but Jake & Sam – not to mention my advancing age – have made me a hypochondriac.)
