Good Day

Today we have had a good day.

Do you know how great that makes me feel, to be able to say that!

It is the simple things that have made our day so great. Baba ate all off his breakfast and lunch. He has not done that for over two weeks, he ate no tea, but I think that his belly may have been full because of everything else he had eaten. So I am not worried.

Baba slept. You do not know how proud I am to say that. Since he has been ill, Baba has only slept on me in the day, and that has been for tiny amounts of time. I am talking half an hour here and there. Before he was poorly he would sleep for 2 – 3 hours in the day. Today he had a three-hour sleep in the middle of the day, and he had it in his bed. So I could tidy downstairs. It was bliss I have never been so excited to be able to clean up.

Baba was loud today. He was cheeky, he was being a monkey. He was climbing over Daddy shouting at the top of his voice when he saw Nanny. He was copying me cooking, by getting all of his plastic stuff out of his cupboard and play cooking and he was fun. He didn’t want the TV on all day. He didn’t want to just sit and watch, he wanted to do things. He was pleased when we put our shoes on and went out. He was happy to be moving. I was so happy to see him moving, after the past few weeks off him just wanting to be on someones lap I was pleased. I love seeing him talking, and playing and just being a little boy again.

Today Baba took his medication all be it with the bribe of a chocolate chip cookie, but he still took it. He didn’t complain too much and he didn’t cry too much. Again I was proud.

I feel like my little boy is being his old self again, and that makes me so happy. There have been many moments over the last few weeks that I have wondered if that was going to happen again. He has been so poorly and has been another child. I still think that we have a long way to go, but he is looking better. He is paler, and he is very skinny. Baba used to have a pot belly and it is all gone, he is now just flat. A few trousers that used to fit are again to big, but they are all things that will come back with time.

The main thing is that Baba is once again laughing and having fun. As a parent that is the best thing in the world.

    Oh joy, sounds like he may be getting back on his feet. The Nebs make sleeping really hard, Salbutamol is a stimulant and can make them all hyper and jittery

    So glad he is on the mend and getting back to himself, it’s never nice seeing them ill and feeling so helpless, especially at his age! xx

    So good to hear he is getting better at last and you’ve been able to recover a little

    It’s amazing how satisfying it is to see our little ones eat and play. Just that. All that 🙂
