A case of the sniffles

Yesterday, as it was nearing Nathan’s nap time, Nathan and I sat down at the computer and I sang along with some songs on YouTube. After about 20 minutes, the little guy was completely knocked out. As in, my voice must have sounded so horrible that the only reprieve Nathan had was to fall asleep! He was so asleep, in fact, that he didn’t wake up as I changed his diaper and put him down for his nap. He slept solidly, like a little angel, and woke up refreshed and happy.

My singing must have really wore him out!

Today, however, that is not the case. He woke up this morning with a stuffy nose, and it has been running like a leaky faucet all day long. He’s been fussy and is constantly swiping at his runny nose with his hands, effectively smearing snot all over his face. When I put him down for a nap, and he only slept lightly because of his nose was so stopped up. He kept trying to suck on his fingers, but then he couldn’t breathe so he would wake up. I don’t know if it’s a cold or allergies. He doesn’t have a fever and seems to have no other symptoms other than a stuffy nose that constantly drips clear fluid. I don’t hink he’s contagious since neither Paul nor I are showing any symptoms.

Poor lil guy. I hate when he doesn’t feel well.



  1. I loved it when my kids liked my singing…then they grew up and discovered that I can’t sing!

    • LOL! Me too! I like it that Nathan likes when I sing… I figure I should enjoy the moments while I can, before he realizes how off-tune I actually am!
