Y'all, I am tired tonight.  Ben has been feeling icky all week long.  I don't want to go into too much detail on the blog - because I can just imagine the kids reading these posts later and saying "Mom!  Why did you tell everybody on the internet that I had diarrhea?!"  Oops.

Anyway, diarrhea and vomiting are over now.  Hooray!  However, he's snotty.  And clingy.  And just not quite himself.  He and I have stayed home from activities most of the week - and canceled a couple of therapy appointments, because it's just plain mean to make a baby work when he's sick.

He ate his dinner tonight, and went to bed quickly.  I am hopeful that he will sleep WELL all through the night and wake up with no more than the sniffles.  And we'll be back at therapy at 10!  :) 

If he's not feeling better, then I will probably drag him off to the doctor.  I hate the not-knowing feeling about when to take a sick kid to the doctor.  Is it a virus?  Does it just need to run its course?  Is it something serious?  And I don't want to be that mom - the one that's always taking her kids to the doctor at the drop of a hat.  But ... I also don't want my kids to be sick.

It's hard on me and him when he's out of sorts.  I feel tired and a little weepy.  Sigh ...


On another note, here's a sweet picture of us at Thanksgiving (when he wasn't feeling sick): 

And there's my mom with all her grandkids.  Yay for cousins!
