For the last month, someone in our family has been sick. It started with Tim and I – sinus infections, turned viral infections – and moved Oliver and Eleanor who had high fevers for a week.
Last night, Alice woke up ever hour or so crying, unable to get comfortable. She was congested and coughing and all around irritable.
One day last week Alice’s teacher remarked that Alice, who had to that point escaped infection, was proof positive that breast milk was like gold.
I guess it’s true that money can’t buy you everything. Here’s to hoping that she recovers quickly.
