QUARANTINE........STAY FAR, FAR AWAY
Hey peeps, that's what I feel like.
My darling sweet baby child is sick for the 2nd day in a row. I hate it when they get sick. Not because I don't enjoy all the extra time I get to spend with them, but genuinely, I hate it when they don't feel well. Especially, when they fell so bad they don't even want to smile for mama.
She woke up yesterday morning with a sore throat and a temp of 102.3. So, break out the Tylenol and send her back to bed. As the day progressed, the temp would go down and come back, go down and come back. She ate alright, but mostly just kind of laid around.
This morning, her temperature was 103.0. And I broke out the Motrin.
Now, here is my dilemma: Do I take her to see the pediatrician, or do I wait another day? This is what I hate about my children being sick. When do you take them? And when do you just wait it out?
What's a mother to do? Looking forward to hearing your procedures for kid sickness.
