BLANKET FORTS = THE BEST MEDICINE


I took a look at the noses of all my friend's kids and the kids in nursery last weekend and knew we were in for a sniffle sesh sometime soon. No escaping it! Even the cashier at Costco had to apologize to me for sounding stuffy. He went on a rant about pressure changes and I zoned out, staring longingly at the Cold-FX off in the distance. Ha just kidding but it's just how it is! People get sick.

It hit Jason first with a rough case of strep throat. I hoped and prayed it wouldn't spread to Remi but a few days later she was sniffling and coughing up a storm. She fevered for a few days, popped 2 teeth the next, seemed back to normal for a couple days after that, and now is back to sniffles and coughs. When it rains it POURS for this girl, I swear! I played nurse for a week (AKA googled my little heart out) and was starting to feeling pretty proud of my immune system! Yeah... I jinxed it.

So here we are - super congested with kleenex close at all times. Remi is not a cuddler so you know she's really feeling down when all she says after waking up is, "sit? guppies??" While she napped I rounded up some of her cutest blankets and built a blanket fort. I will soak up every snuggle I can get! What my baby wants, my baby gets. ha! (even if it means Bubble Guppies songs running through my head on repeat) We have been glazed over machines and I don't feel guilty for a second!

Remi requested reading bedtime stories in the "fort" so she gathered her books and with the most excitement I have seen all day, bolted upstairs. We read and read until she climbed up, put her little head on my shoulder, and asked to go "nigh nigh". I think she was asleep before I even laid her down in her crib! Poor lady. Sometimes the cleaning, counting, getting outside, practicing colors, getting dressed (what?!) and all that high-energy jazz just has to wait on days where blanket forts are the best type of medicine.
