I have been sick and so has little Max. Its kinda a nightmare. I've been so desperate for a few moments of peace that I have taken to giving him suckers when he is extremely fussy. Bad parenting? Nope just survival. Especially when you have a husband who is gone so much and can't afford to get sick so he doesn't want to breath the same air as you. I also have taken on way to much. My plate is full watching my sister-in-laws 6 kids, plus max and the baby permanently attached inside me. Wish me luck! And Carlene while she runs her half marathon! We are hoping we feel better in the next few days and get to relax soon.
