Tired Mama

Chunguita has a cold, so she isn’t sleeping well.

Last night while we were drying her off from her bath, dh notices the
triaminic cold and nighttime cough or something like that on the shelf.
“Why don’t we give her some of that?” he asks.

I swear I read on the label that children under 6 get 2 tsps. Well,
they don’t. Chunguita should get 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp. And this time,
instead of fighting me, Chunguita took most of the medicine.

So then I spend the next half hour on the phone to Kaiser. The nurse
was great. Of all the times that I have dealt with Kaiser on the
phone, I have only had 2 nurses that I thought were jerks. She
validated my concern but wasn’t judgemental at all, which I really
needed. Fortunately, 2 tsps of that triaminic syrup isn’t that much,
and she told me to watch for excessive drowsiness, and then we talked
about how to check Chunguita in her sleep to make sure she was sleeping
and not unconscious since it was bedtime and Chunguita should be sleepy.

Well, Chunguita did not sleep particularly well, and I didn’t have to
worry about waking up every 2 hours to check her because Chunguita did
anyway. Poor baby, I had to use a warm wash cloth this morning to get
all the dried up mucus off and out of her nose.

So I leave you with these thoughts:

Alls well, that ends well (but next time I will read the label 3 times)

You can pick your nose,
and you can pick your baby’s nose,
but you can’t pick your baby.
