As a parent one of the worst things in seeing you child ill. You feel so helpless and would do anything to make them better even if that meant you being ill instead.
Paige has had a few colds and tends to pick more up now she is at nursery but that's fine, it's all part of growing up.
A sickness bug is another story. For a child to be sick multiple times a day is awful, even once is awful. We are over a week into a sickness bug. There are good days and bad days. It is really starting to have an effect on Paige. She hates throwing up and just keeps saying ''no sick anymore''. It's heartbreaking.
We took her to the doctors and there isn't much we can do. Just ride it out. The doctor said that in toddlers they can last 2 weeks.
At times she will just lay on the sofa, like a completely different child. Normally she is constantly running around. She wants cuddles, which I am loving but it is so sad to see. She is taking 1 or 2 naps a day which she hasn't done since she was a year old.
To top it off Parker is now sick as well. It's not as bad for him. Of course it isn't nice but he doesn't really understand what is wrong. He will be sick and then carry on playing like nothing has happened. Whereas Paige is sleeping a lot more, Parker is sleeping a lot less. I was up from 2am-7am with him the other night.
Our little peek of happiness was when Paige and daddy played outside on the seesaw. To see her face light up even just for a few minutes was the most amazing thing I've seen in days.
We will ride this bug out and when it's over we will stuff our faces with Easter eggs, which are in the cupboard untouched, and enjoy out own mini Easter a few days late.
Until then I'll be giving lots of cuddles, losing sleep and cleaning up sick.
But I'd do it all over in a heartbeat.
