Today is one of those days where you don't really enjoy motherhood and wish that you had a paid job that you could go to rather than being stuck at home all day. Lately we have been feeling like we have 'cabin fever' as Noah has had some time off school. He had a chest infection at the end of last week and although he isn't overly sick I feel more comfortable keeping him at home at the moment as he is really cranky and no one looks after him quite as good as Mum does :) He is also teething and finally his two adult teeth are about to break through his gums in the front. He lost his baby tooth there about 3 years ago, and because of all his meds his gums are very swollen so it's been hard for the teeth to come through. So for the last couple of weeks we have had a very cranky boy.
Kobe has also had a cold for a week or two that just doesn't want to go away. He has also been teething and surprised me with two new teeth last week. I thought he was just waking because he didn't feel well with his cold. He hasn't wanted to eat much at all and refused to eat his weetbix for breakfast, and instead just screamed.
I know I look like a terrible Mum taking a photo of their child in distress, but this went on for about 15 minutes as he kept chucking a tantrum and going to the nappy bag as he knows I usually have little containers of rice crackers and biscuits in there.
I kept showing him his weetbix but he kept crying, so I made him some vegemite on toast. He then cried even more and kept wanting me to open the nappy bag up.
Forty five minutes later we compromised. His breakfast still sat at the high chair, but he agreed to have some saltanas which I thought were a better option than biscuits for breakfast.
I was hanging out for lunch time when I knew it would be nap time.
It was a bonus that Noah decided to have a nap at the same time - finally some peace in the house!
Kobe woke up in a much better mood. Hopefully tomorrow will be a much happier day in the King house!
