Is there anything more pathetic than a toddler with a cough? Especially when it's wet and at the end she gags on the drainage? (TMI? Sorry.)
And then looks at you like you somehow caused/could have prevented this?
Oh, and she wakes up thirteen million times a night coughing and then sadly moaning for Mama.
Oh, and when Mama goes into her room, she quietly and sadly says, "Up, please, Mama." Or "Hold you, please."
So then Mama ends up holding her upright in the chair or walking around the kitchen for a good couple hours a night. Or laying in her crib with her trying for the love of all that is good and holy to get her to lay her head back down.
Needless to say we haven't gotten much sleep in the past few nights. My poor mom visiting from Wisconsin this week has been asking me how often this happens. And not entirely believing me when I say, "Um, not often."
