As I type this, I'm sipping (more like gulping down) a large pumpkin iced coffee while simultaneously dealing with a cranky and slightly disobedient toddler who refuses to nap. It was a long night. Who am I kidding? It's been a long week. Lincoln is still recovering from croup and then I got hit with the plague. I guess it was only a matter of time. I only have the one kiddo so maybe it's a first time mom thing but this bout with croup has been crazy scary. There were a couple of nights I thought I might need to take Lincoln to the emergency room. Good thing I have a calm, sensible better half who intervened and did more than his fair share at trying to comfort our little guy. I married up, you guys.
It's been a while since I did a personal post or even shared updated pictures of Lincoln. These were taken the day before we found out he had croup and it made me realize just how much I miss him. Yes, he's a busy one but I've missed his laugh and crazy personality. You know your kids don't feel well when they just aren't themselves. And it's so sad. Heartbreaking even.
Well, today I've seen a little more of his personality come back. A tad bit of his adventurous side. And I like it. It's a good reminder for me to love and appreciate all the little quirks my child has, no matter how crazy they may be.
