The Face

This is the face of a boy coughing. With a cold.
A boy who has woken screaming throughout the night.
For the last three nights.

The face of a boy who feels sick. Angry and frustrated.

This is the face of a boy who today threw a temper tantrum to rival this one.
A boy who bit mommy. Hard. Again.
A boy who threw up on mommy. Twice.

And yet.

This is the face of a boy who makes my breath catch in my throat.
And reminds me of how fortunate I am to have had such a terrible day.

Cuteness is definitely a natural defence. I hope he gets better soon.

We've been telling The Baby that he's lucky he is so darn cute for eight months! As I try to calm him in his crib at 2:54 a.m. I remind myself that I will never have this particular chance to comfort him again. It helps!

He is absolutely adorable. You'd better never let him read all these comments about what a good looking kid he is or he'll get a huge ego.

Thanks for the supportive words on the evil neighbor - it's great to know I'm not overreacting!
