Our #sliceofperfect in a #messyreality

Here is a #sliceofperfect (project by Jill Krause over at Baby Rabies)

That face. I can't stand it! Behind that adorable tongue is a fevery virus waiting to be spread around.

That face. I can’t stand it! Behind the sweet baby kisses is a fevery virus waiting to be spread around.

Can you tell this kid has a fever? Probably not, but a couple hours before this was taken she was vomiting her breakfast.

So here’s the bad: she is sick. She’s had a fever between 101 and 102 since yesterday. Before I realized she was sick, we ran around all day and probably infected lots of people including a group of other mommies and babies that we met up with in the morning. We were up late, her diaper leaked at 1 am, and she woke up earlier than usual. I’m running out of ideas of how to entertain a sick 10 month old.

However, we got to see my mom yesterday, and her cardiologist friend said Miriam’s heart sounded healthy. Bodie and I acted as a team and traded off caring for Miriam without arguing with each other. Tylenol helped. Miri did sleep for 6 straight hours last night and has been napping like a champ today. She has been nursing tons and even got down a few bites of dinner last night and breakfast today. I got the taxes done, the health insurance paperwork, the bills paid, and have fed us all healthy meals.

She’ll feel better soon, but in the meantime we’ll take all the prayers and kind thoughts we can get. Here is our #messyreality



And here are some other awesome participants in this blog hop!

    Hey great website! Does running a blog like this require a large amount of
    work? I have absolutely no understanding of coding but I had been hoping to start my own blog
    in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just wanted to ask.
    Thank you!

      Oh no problem! For me it doesn’t take that much work because I don’t force myself to post when I don’t want to, and I don’t have expectations that blogging will be a career. I do it for fun and to share / encourage others with our experiences, and because I love to do it.

      I actually did not code any part of this site; I think WordPress and other similar sites are a great “beginner” tool because you don’t have to know anything about web design, coding, or how to run a blog, they have tools set up for you to use (that are free). If you want to get into the more complicated stuff (like coding) you actually have to pay for it, so most bloggers who don’t make much money (or any) from their sites usually just use the free templates. I tweaked mine by adding my own background, header, etc. There are plenty of tutorials around, and Google is a great tool too.

      Best wishes for your blogging endeavors!
