Ayden

Keep away! The lurgy has struck.

On the evening of his birthday my newly two-year old little man started being sick and he's been pretty poorly ever since. 

Just as Ayden's symptoms started to improve, Dylan and Meryn woke us in the night with the dreaded "mummy, I feel sick".

*heart sinks*

It's never easy when your little ones are sick. We've all been there. Covered in vomit and/or snot. Drenching anything that'll stay still long enough in Dettol. Endless wash/dry/wash/dry cycle. Broken sleep (even more so than normal). 

But the cuddles... it's all worth it for the cuddles. Ayden is such a busy little man, its been lovely to just lie on the sofa and hug him. And Dylan and Meryn have been extra snuggly too.

Thankfully, they're on the mend now and starting to get their appetites back. Energy levels are still pretty low though, so I'm making the most of the cuddles before they're bouncing round like Tigger on Red Bull again.

  1. Oh bless them Kate, lurgies suck, especially as the weather has been so nice- you should all be outside enjoying it. I hope everyone is completely better soon. Although I must admit I do love a sneaky poorly cuddle! ;) x

    1. I know, we've been going stir crazy. Imagining everyone else on the beach and BBQ'ing in the sunshine! They're all better now though, so fingers crossed for lovely weather this weekend to make up for it :) x

  3. We had this the other week, all three of my littles got chicken pox, one after each other, each getting it more severely. so we had a solid 4-5 weeks of it! plus being on holiday, and then moving home! harsh, but all the extra cuddles are lovely eve though its awful seeing them suffer. snuggling knowing they feel better because of our touch is beautiful. lovely photo though x
