Cold hearted mama

Nurse: So how old are you sweetie.

Son: Six and a half.


Me: Um, he's 3.


Son: Don't tell her that! (Shoots me a dirty look)

Poor son has been whomped with the awfully named
coxsackievirus virus topped with strep throat. My heart breaks for the little guy. We've got popsicles, jello, antibiotics and alternating cool baths and Motrin. He's got new toys and coloring books and nonstop Cyber Chase cartoons.

But for the love of all that is good and holy will someone please turn off the mooooooaaaaaning that has been coming from him without pause since Saturday morning. My ears are bleeding.

Ooooh Poor baby. I hope he stops whining soon.

No, really, I hope he gets well quickly...That illness bites.

Poor kid (and Mommy too). Coxsackie is NO fun.

Popsicles and jello! Can I come over?

Maybe if you put the brokeback shirt back on he'll feel better.

Cute as hell: "Don't tell her that"!!!!

Coxackie sounds like hackeysack. Is it ;-)

I'm sending a get better hug from Oregon!

Poor baby! And poor you.

That virus sounds awful. Anything that has the word virus in it twice has got to be nasty.

I got shingles once and it should totally have had the word virus in it twice because it hurt like a bitch!

As a matter of fact the only thing I've ever had that was aptly named was walking pneumonia because it kind of sounds like an illness that zombies would get.

Or maybe it's just me.

I worked at a day care center before I had kids & contracted this vile plague on humanity as an adult!!! It was miserable...I hope your little one gets well soon & I really hope that you don't get it...it really is the pits! Interestingly enough, my good friend called yesterday & her daughter has it. Must be going around. Yippee.

OH man! I hope he gets better quickly and I hope you do not get it either. Have a glass of wine...it helps drown out the whining...

Aw, that is so sad. I am sorry to hear that. Maybe a double shot of Nyquil for mom?
