Amid the good times, a reality check.

26 Apr

Things have been so great lately (WHADDUP, SECOND TRIMESTER?!?!?!) that I thought it might be wise to revisit a very bad, very real day in the not-so-distant past.  You know, just to keep my head in the game.

Bad day.

Meet my son, Seabass.  He hasn’t had a haircut in 1.16 million years.  He has been sick with an upper respiratory infection for 4 months.  Snot gushes from his nose with impunity 24/7.  Oh, and the infection has spread to his ear, so his balance is off and he falls down a lot when he walks.  (Hence, the scrapes and scabs on his face.)  His skin is weathered and chapped from both the constant snot-wiping and cold, wintry weather.  He is getting his two-year molars, so he drools.

On top of everything, he’s about to turn FREAKING TWO YEARS OLD.

This period of time seemed to last years, but it was nothing that a visit to Supercuts, a few antibiotics, doctor visits, boxes of Kleenex, tubes of Aquaphor and buckets of Tylenol couldn’t fix.

    Oh my gosh, those welled up tears just clenched my heart! Sweet Boy. I also LOVE aquaphor for those chappy cheeks, chin, nose, whatever.

    I definitely agree about Aquaphor!
