Snotty noses, fevers and coughs – I’m so over it!!! 


Before the germs struck!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have all had a fruitful week and looking forward to the weekend. It doesn’t really matter to me – which day of the week it is – I’m on maternity leave as you know, but that certainly doesn’t mean I get a day off!

The past 2 weeks have really been the hardest, thanks to those good old germs. First it was Alyssa with an ear infection, then it was me down with a cold, then Aidan got a cold and now Alyssa’s illness has flared up once again! My poor babies have been tag teaming to keep Mommy and Daddy out of sleep. If it rains, it pours I tell you! I really don’t know how Daddy is managing to stay awake at work because these past few nights have just been disastrous. I really hope that once Aidan’s cold passes, we will be able to get a reasonable amount of unbroken sleep. The poor baba’s coughing and blocked nose keeps him awake most of the night.

Winter has just about started and I usually love it – boots, scarves and hot chocolate – that’s what would usually spring to mind. Now all I can think of is snotty noses, fevers and coughs! We’ve been to the paedeatrician 4 times in 3 weeks – OMG our poor medical aid fund – but you can never leave these things untreated – rather safe than sorry. The worst part though is seeing these little ones in discomfort, it’s the worst feeling ever.

On the bright side, Aidan will be two months old on Sunday and he’s really growing beautifully. Alyssa is warming up to him slowly but surely. The look on her face was just priceless when he gave her a smile for the first time 🙂


This weekend will once again bring on some chilly weather so please keep warm everyone and keep the germs away!

    Wishing you all good health very very soon! All the sick is one of the worst things when they are so small.

    Ahh, sorry the kids have been sick. We’ve also seen our GP a lot lately. And it’s not even winter yet. Sigh.

    Hope you all feel better and get some sleep too. Had the same in our house but finally over it.
