Oh dear LORD, I think my children and I missed the boat on immunity when they were giving it out! I am a sad and pathetic asthmatic and have been since birth. I missed a lot of school because of it. On average I would have about 4 sinus infections and 2-3 bad bouts of asthma per year growing up. After 5 years of allergy shots and sinus surgery, things are much better. HOWEVER, Spencer has inherited the dreaded asthma. Sucks to your ass-mar! (Little Lord of the Flies reference for those that think I'm two fries short of a happy meal).
Spencer has gotten a cold maybe 2 times in his short 3 1/2 years on this planet where it HASN'T turned into pneumonia/bronchiolitis. We're talking about in insane amount of lung infections. It's miserable.Or at least that's what one would think right?
When your baby is sick, it's the saddest thing in the world. The coughing, the snot and puppy dog eyes. SAD! EXCEPT when your baby turns into a toddler that no longer wants to just sit in mommy's lap when they are sick. Instead, he wants to run around, make himself cough even more AND to top it all off, repeats the following phrase every 3 minutes: "I need a tissue!"
I love my boy, I feel terrible when he's sick, but if I hear him whine, "I need a tissue" again in the next 5 minutes, I'm going to put in my 2 weeks notice. Done.
Good thing he went to bed already.
