Toddler Log: 2 Years and 22 Weeks Old

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Marlie, who I now refer to as Terror Fabulous (not the reggae dancehall artist), had quite an interesting week. She started off with the bright idea to boycott nap time. Fun for her, frustrating for me. The upside was that she crashed at bedtime, no ploys to delay going to sleep at night. 

On Thursday morning she woke up and emphatically stated, "I don't feel good. I need medicine." I checked her temperature, felt her tummy for stiffness and got her ready for school. She ate breakfast normally and we headed out the door. She sounded congested when I picked her up and then she fell asleep on the way home. Then she napped for 2 1/2 hours! I kept checking on her because she was breathing hard. I rubbed some eucalyptus ointment under her nostrils while she was still asleep. She immediately started draining mucus when she woke up. Poor thing had a cold. She was fine except for all the snot. She sat on the couch with me for the rest of the day and we watched tv and shared a mango. That evening, I received an alert from her school that strep throat was going around. aack! Marlie has not shown any signs, so I think she's been spared.

As for chocolate chip...this baby has got the moves like Jagger! The kid dances around so much that it wakes me up at night and I have to go to the potty very often. I take it in stride and just tell myself to enjoy the sensation of feeling him/her move because pretty soon s/he will be out and I will forget this feeling.

Our weekend was uneventful. We did the usual...shopping for groceries, shopping for household supplies. When did my life get so routine? I am hoping to go on a picnic Monday if the weather cooperates (in my language that means warm temps, at least 60 degrees). I need to check our TV listings or Netflix for Eyes on the Prize. Happy King Holiday!

My daughter is in that odd stage where she wants to drop the nap but doesn't last throughout the day. Like just yesterday she woke up late, and stayed awake until 7.

I'm just lucky I got dinner into that child.

Hope that Marlie feels better, nothing is worse than a sick child.

C has her days too where she decides not to sleep and though she frustrates me all day, she goes to bed like a champ. Just a phase, right?! lol

And my little nugget is a Jagger-mover too. All. Day. All. Night.

Also, Eyes on the Prize doesn't appear to be airing in Feb. WTH?! But I think there's got to be somewhere online that will stream it (Netflix doesn't). I might just get it from my library.

I remember when my kids were that age! At times you want them to grow up and others you wish they'd stay babies forever! :)

Awww, I hope your little one is feeling better now. I hate when my kiddos get sick. I love the "Moves like Jagger!"

I hope Marlie's been spared strep as it is so painful. Oh I remember the days of snot and more snot..lol.

Lewis *loves* taking medicine. He has said "I need medicine" to me on more than one occasion. I think its funny. Hope Marlie is OK. The strep and pink eye (!) notices have gone up at the school. That is the last thing I want for my boy.

Glad it wasn't strep and hope everyone is well. Sounds like you may have another Marlie on your hands - in regards to activity level for C. Chip. Giving up naps is a very, very hard time. Just when you think it is over, they will nap when you least expect it and totally throw you off.
