I can’t breathe out of my nose for the second day in a row. It is SO incredibly frustrating, and I think Brayden is starting to get whatever I have as well. He is coughing, sneezing, etc. What a not so wonderful way to start out our already super busy weekend. The Neti-pot and I are best friends, as is Sudafed.
It didn’t stop us from spending the day with Laura and Caden at her in laws pool though. I figured if I was going to be miserable either way, that the boys should have fun. Wouldn’t you know it, my child is scared of the pool. He couldn’t climb up my shoulders any faster to not have to put his feet in. We tried everything. Starting in slow, splashing, putting him in a floatie and swirling him around. Nothing worked. We tried eating, we tried napping. As soon as I laid him down in the Pack N Play, he woke right up, smiled, and started dancing. A clever boy he is! SO, we went back out to the pool. And then this is what happened….
After swaying him around in the pool, he started to fall asleep. Laura took this picture- how cute! 20 minutes after this, he was sleeping on a makeshift bed of towels in the shade. He proceeded to sleep for an hour and a half! Maybe the next time at the pool he will enjoy it more.
We have a busy weekend planned, so today I am resting, hoping to kick this cold. Happy weekend!
