Sick little girl :,(

My house today is scarily quiet. My poor little three year old is sick, and for the first time in a long time is taking a nap. I’m sure those of you who have children know how painful it is to see them ill, you just want to have it yourself instead! =[

At 3am this morning she came into my bedroom and crawled up onto the bed, I thought she was up to her old tricks until she touched me and her little palms were roasting hot, then upon looking at her little face her cheeks, nose and forehead were bright red. Poor little soul! I then got her to lay on the bed while I went to get the thermometer and some calpol! We have a snazzy little one that you don’t have to put against your head, you hold it in front of there forehead and if they have a high fever its red, then orange for a little over and green whenever the temperature is fine. She looked at me all frail looking and said “mummy please don’t let it go red” Sure enough it went red, my poor little baby! So I took off her pjs and gave her some calpol! She quickly fell asleep and I was hoping she would be her usual energetic self this morning .. She wasn’t :,( she has now spent the majority of her day on the floor in her duvet either fighting sleep or sleeping! She is like a little furnace! Also really unlike her she doesn’t want to eat anything at all.. not even ice cream and I’m generally begged for that daily!

I feel completely useless as nothing I can do to make her feel better.. all she wants to do is cuddle then complains she’s too warm so gets annoyed then wants to cuddle again after five mins! I so hope tomorrow she wakes up her normal hyper self or we will be off to the doctors! 39.2 tempurate, bless her :,( image

Anyway I must dash and try and hunt out things to help her and to look after her!
Any thing that you guys do to help your little ones feel more comfortable? Help!! 😦

Remembering the Good <3

Time just seems to vanish at the moment, since having my little man i seem to blink and a week disappears! It doesn’t seem like ten days since I last blogged.. more importantly it is nearly impossible for e to believe that he is 7 weeks old today… did I have a giant sleep through a few weeks after having him?!?

Some days it feels like he has been here forever, we have a lovely little routine (which generally works..) his big sister is completely in love with him and everything goes as smoothly as it can with a three year old and a 7 week old! I can’t wait for it to be the summer so that I can start taking hem both out for long walks and explorers as right now it is a little cold for him to b out and about for a long period of time..

Other days I don’t know how i cope. My three year old doesn’t listen or help and the little man just wants to be held constantly, which obviously just can’t always happen so easily whenever I am trying to entertain my little girl! These days I just want to scream, run and hide. I think that there is no way that I am going to get through the day.. but I manage! Mainly because of my fantastic hubby, who doesn’t always know how rough of a day it has been but will aways make me smile and give me a cuddle when he gets through the door from work! Then there is my mu, who I know no matter what that she is just a little phone call away and if i’m really struggling she will be with me as quickly as she can to help. Generally I just call and ask what is she up to and does she fancy coming round for a cuppa, because one thing I’m not to great at is asking for help or support. I feel that if i ask for this then I am admitting defeat and that I wouldn’t be able to do it all on my own. I like to think that no matter what happens I would be able to cope on my own and handle the kids, suppose most people like to know they can do it on there own, but I know I must work on opening up to people about how I feel and to ask for help when I need it rather than just hoping that they will see that I need it. Talking about emotions and how I feel about anything at all though isn’t a strong point at all for me

The main thing that gets me through the hard days, is remembering the good. Remembering how fantastic and well behaved my little three year old ca be when she wants to be. That I have a great support network full of family & friends;Also how lucky I am to have a beautiful loving family, a roof over our heads and full tummies.
Thank you guys ❤

So; Remember the good times, because hey, life would be too predictable if we didn't have the bad.
What do you guys do/think to get you through the hard times?

Blah,blah,blah

Even though I am in a great deal of pain, and my bump is somewhat massive and still growing, I just don’t seem to feel pregnant! I am finding it really strange mainly because of how this pregnancy has gone, hasn’t been smooth sailing at all like my first and has been constantly reminding me that I am pregnant. I mean, I know I’m going to have a baby, it just doesn’t feel real! its confusing to explain.. I’m sure your probably all reading this thinking, what is she going on about! I suppose the easiest way to explain it, is I know I’m having a baby, but it doesn’t feel like the baby will be here in less than two months!

Today to try and help myself realise that a baby will be in this house shortly, I built & made the cot up! Luckily my lovely mum came round to help me, because with my SPD I really couldn’t have managed to do it by myself while trying to contain a three year old too! It is very upsetting and makes me feel very weak and pathetic that I can’t do these simple tasks! I also think that is another reason why I don’t feel like the baby will be here soon, or at least am in denial about the baby being here so soon because I can’t do things to prepare the house and all that fun jazz! I must say though my mum and my family have been such a fantastic help through all this! I really do appreciate all they do for me! At the moment I am relying on my mum a great deal because my hubby works shifts, which sucks in these kind of situations. well actually it sucks full stop, but I can’t complain because when he is here, he is fantastic its just the trying to get him here and awake! My mum though really is my best friend, she is just so wonderful! She has been taking me wherever I need to/fancy going, taking my little one to and from play school and plenty of other things. I think without her help at the moment I would end up just staying in bed all day watching DVDS with my little girl eating rubbish all the time! Though now that I think of doing that, it actually sounds like a good plan! =D My sister and my dad have also been great, as they have taken my little one out on adventures and stopped her from being trapped inside. Taking her out also helps to waste her energy.. she is very energetic for a little one… she would run circles all day constantly while talking if you let her!

Anyway, I got distracted sorry! So we built the cot and got the bedding put on to it, it is such a cute little themem and I am even happier with it now it is on the cot! I loved it when we bought it.. obviously, or I wouldn’t have bought it, but now that it is on and all set up, it is so beautiful! Here is a little picture so that you guys can admire it too!

isn’t the turtle just wonderful! I have the matching changing mat, towel, and all that kind of jazz that you need for a bay! 😛  Now I am just on the count down till the wardrobes and the rest arrive! Not long now, they are being delivered on Tuesday! Then I can get the mountain of clothes sorted and his room will start to look like a room, rather than a dumping ground for clothes and the likes!

I didn’t think my bump could get any bigger.. but every morning when I wake up it seems to be getting bigger and my clothes are getting smaller! I’m sure one of these days my tummy is literally going to explode! This morning actually my little girl said the most cutest thing ever, she cuddled into my bump and said “you are going to be the best baby brother, I can’t wait to change your nappy. I love you” How precious ❤ Though if she is interested in changing the nappies, she may work away.. I must admit that isn’t the bit I am most excited for!

Here is my 33+2 bump! I feel huge! =[ what do you think?
