Cuddles Are Priority Today

I'm "working" with one arm (and some times less) today. You see, I have this little boy who feels yucky and who needs that aspirator a.k.a. The Snotter but refuses it. He's very good at duck and cover. He also needs Tylenol but he spit it out or more accurately, he let it all fall out of his mouth and onto his shirt when he bawled about me giving him the stuff in the first place.

He doesn't want to eat. He doesn't want to play. He does, however, want to remain in my arms and rest his head on me. Both arms. He wants both arms because everyone knows that when you are feeling sick only full attention will do.

There are a lot of things I wanted to accomplish today. Okay, there are a few key things I wanted to get done. Right now though, I'm just hoping for a shower. How quickly priorities can change!

aw, poor baby. I don't know what was on your "to do" list but every time I find myself in your position. I let the list go and enjoy the cuddles I get with my kids. Before we know it they won't want us to cuddle them anymore.

I'm so depressing.

I'm sorry. Seems like everyone/everyone's kids are sick! I hate this time of the year.

Poor little guy!! Hope he feels better soon. And soak every second up that he wants to cuddle, everything else will be there waiting!! It's going to seem like tomorrow when all the sudden they don't want that anymore.

Awwww! That is so sweet. I like that your priorities changed and you seem to be enjoying it in a Plan-B / make-the-best-of-it sort of way. And you can remember all these cuddles and lovin's for when he's 12 and trying to stand a step farther away from his mom in order to look cool! :) Cute pic of him. And HILARIOUS name for the nose-suction-thingy!

Aw, hope the little man is feeling better soon. True that, priorities. Sick kids = the suck.
