Nobody Told Me

Brody is sick for the very first time. He has the yucky snot, the nasty cough and fluid behind one ear so he's always tugging at it.I'm so glad we made it 8 months without him having a cold. When he was a newborn, he had a lot of tummy issues, but never was sick.

However, I would like to know why nobody* told me how things would be when your baby gets sick for the first time.

Nobody told me that I would have to suck snot out of his nose with that sucker thing so much that he would start to hate me.

Nobody told me that his sweet little eyes would be all droopy and sad.

Nobody told me that he would be SO whiney and irritable that I would go insane if I don't cuddle and love on him all day.

Nobody told me that he wouldn't want to eat.

Nobody told me that he would want to sleep all day, yet not be able to sleep because he can't breathe out of his nose.

Nobody told me a lot of things about sick babies.

I don't like it. I want him to be all better and back to his happy little self. He's on medicine so hopefully it will be soon! How do moms survive and actually be productive around their home in these times? And this is just a cold! I can't even imagine when its a virus or something!

*I wanted to use "no one" instead of nobody..but I couldn't figure out how to type it. Is it 1 or 2 words?


  1. I know its terrible isn't it? You wish you could just take it away for them:(

  2. correct spelling is no one. i like it better than nobody, but that's just me. you could have also said no person. :)
