I am tired. No doubt about it, I am one exhausted Mama! Michael is sick, again (let's not confuse this with when he had a stomach bug a week ago). He has the virus that is going around these parts. Cough (not really croup), congestion, and a fever of 103 that only stays down if I alternate Tylenol and Motrin every 3-4 hours. This is day 3. Surely we are coming to an end, right?
What is frustrating are the habits that are being formed right now. He is watching too much TV (I know, turn it off), but he has no energy for anything else. All he wants is Tom and Jerry. I hate Tom and Jerry. The other problem is that if I don't get him what he needs, I mean, wants quickly enough, he is screaming at me (like this is acceptable behavior). I am very frustrated. It is hard to reason with a 3 year old, much less one who feels awful! I am tired.
