Adventures in raising a geeky child

What a day! November 19, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — scifimama @ 9:49 pm

I woke up with a headache. I took a couple of Tylenol and started wishing it away. Yeah right. Paige woke up feel kinda punky. No fever, just not herself. Usually she wakes up at warp 5 and doesn’t slow down. This morning she just wanted to be held & snuggled. She mostly gets herself dressed these days, with a little help from us. This morning she just laid on the bed and let me dress her. All the time asking for Daddy who was getting dressed himself.

I left work early with a migraine that just wouldn’t stop. I wanted to leave before my eyes got too sensitive to light and I couldn’t drive. Came straight home, crawled into bed & stayed there. I had my bottle of esgic close by. (It’s a migraine medicine.) One didn’t do the trick, so I popped a second one. I slept for a couple of hours & started feeling a bit more human. Or at least like I wouldn’t rip anyone’s head off for breathing too loud. The ice pick being slammed into my head was reduced down to a small hammer.

Ronnie came home around 3 with Paige. Daycare had called. My little girl had a temp of 102 & just wasn’t feeling like herself. She gladly snuggled with Mommy on the couch. I kept a constant stream of Diego and Dora going to keep her happy. Paige, the child who doesn’t like medicine, actually asked for some. That’s how I know she doesn’t feel well! She says nothing hurts. And aside from the feeling sluggish, she’s acting just fine.

Ronnie had to work tonight, and Aunt Wii had church, so it was just me and Paige. With my headache and her fever. What a combination. She’s tucked nicely into bed. I’m about to head there myself, along with my bottle of esgic. Paige will be staying home from daycare tomorrow. Hopefully she’ll feel better, and so will I.

    Blech. Yesterday was my migraine day and unfortunately for me, my little man was feeling just dandy. Every excited gurgle he made vibrated around my skull. I hope you two are feeling much better tomorrow.
