Sick out

Trying to take the nappy off the teddy,
patience very far away
When the little one is sick, Every-Thing comes to a standstill! E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! Shew-eeeh! It is rough! And we have only got one toddler...

All our plans for the weekend were cancelled because of sickness! Not because of our toddler who was sick, but because of the other parties involved. In the end it turned out to be a good thing. Toddler is “Miss Difficult” herself! Nothing seems to be pleasing or to her liking! When something falls on the floor, she goes into “Princess”-mode, and goes “Uh-uh-uh!!” until someone picks it up, or we suffer a MAJOR tantrum upheaval! (Not that we “dance” to her every whim...)

She’s not feeling well! We KNOW THAT! We FEEL THAT!

My Mom looked after her on Friday, and said that she kept them very busy. When she traced the outline of her hand on a paper, she had to do it again. And again. And again... Uh, uh, uh!

The fever has finally broken! We are only struggling with the blocked and runny nose. It had us up until 12 last night, because she could not drink or sleep properly. Hopefully she will sleep in her bed again tonight, because my back is broken, and Hubby’s back is broken. She sleeps on 90%of our bed, and we hang on to dear life! The double bed is way too small!

We went to the movies yesterday, and at one stage I thought that we did not fully think it through. The toddler was saying “Klaar!” (Finish) when the previews were showing already. She was walking around in the isle, and moving from my lap to her sister’s lap to Dad’s lap! Shrek is a very very very long movie! Luckily the storyline was not bad! We made it to the end! Huge achievement!

We have also been collecting a variety of containers with food. We try different kinds of food/snacks/tit-bits to get her to eat, but when Little Missy is sick, nothing seems to her liking! We actually got excited when she ate her first spoonful of lasagne!

We survived the last four days! Well done to us! (Huge smile of relief!)

List of tactics to get them to sleep


  1. oh my,i remember those days of sick toddlers. sjoe - glad she is on the mend!

  2. Sorry to hear she is still sick, but hopefully the little one will feel much better soon!

  3. Not fun. We are in the middle of winter here where we live in Victoria, Australia and believe me EVERYONE is sick. If it's not colds then it's tummy bugs. Yuk. My kids are getting better at not picking up everything but there always seems to be someone who is unwell. So I'm hearing you loud and clear. Hope your little one is feeling better soon xo

  4. Oh I have a sick princess and apparently she has a brother joining her today. It is not going to be fun.


I love to hear your comments :D
