Okay. So we survived the stomach bug a week ago, only to contract a cold. Yuck. JBird is hacking up stuff, and it's nasty. He started coughing Friday and its gradually gotten worse. Now it's a deep, crackly, chest cough. I'm also cleaning out his nose 50 times a day (which he loves... NOT!). So I called the pediatrician to see if I needed to bring him in. The gave me some "signs" to look for, none of which he exhibits. I'm trying really hard not to be THAT Mom - you know, the crazy one who takes her kid to the doctor weekly complaining of imaginary illnesses? I know that the pediatrician will roll her eyes tomorrow when I call AGAIN, but I'm bringing him in. I hate to see my little JBird cough. And with my luck, if I don't take him, he'll have RSV or something bad by Friday night. Hello ER! I'll take my chances on being THAT Mom.

  1. It's OK to be that mom. You have not had an easy time with this little J-bird. You are wise to realize that he is completely dependent on you for his care (& his dad of course). Praying that he will get better soon. Love, Mom
