baby bug..

Am I that contagious???

My hubby and my father-in-law are the next two after me to succumb to the wee one's wunderbug...Hubby was so sick that he had to go see a doctor to get some meds and MC and he'd dooshed on the bed since early this evening..Dad-in-law started having chills and fever yesterday night and went to the doc early this morning..The only one who seemed to have fully recovered is Aidan..

Now, if only Aidan can be the one looking after us all..

mom-in-law is now praying hard that the bug will bypass her...she's been imbibing tons of vitamins to build up her immunity system..

Being a SAHM is truly a fulltime job ..When hubby's sick, he gets to take leave from work and back home, he's able to rest peacefully, play his game whenever he wants to, let his wife pamper and sayang him and sleep without interruptions..but, when I'm sick, where can I go to rest? I have to still continue my regular 'job' of caring for and feeding Aidan, even though I'm so mabok ..like yesterday, I was so stoned that I'd dropped his full bottle of milk while walking to the baby chair..Poor bugger thought that he wasn't gonna get fed and started bawling till he saw the new bottle of milk I quickly made for him and started to shake about excitably..

Anyway, thankfully..I am feeling much better cept for the messed-up nose that's still dripping non-stop (that lousy runny-nose med #%^*). Hope hubby recovers soon too. One day, I'll ask hubby to take leave from work to be at home with Aidan fulltime and I'll just hand him a leave form for myself saying that I'll be on leave from home and will be out shopping :D..


Finally, Aidan can sit up pretty well now..He hasn't been doing it that steadily before..even yesterday, he was still quite wobbly and could only sit up for at most 1 min or so..but today, that boy discovered that hey..sitting up was a breeze and he was so amazed with himself that he started squealing at me or anyone who was around to see him to showoff his newly acquired skill..As a result, I've got a splitting headache from all his squealing since I'm always around him.. For my sanity's sake, I hope Aidan will take his time to crawl and walk..

Hmm..doesn't he look..kinda more grownup now?

yeah, not a v good pic ... but Aidan sure looks mighty pleased with himself..

glad the little guy's all better now...

hey!! when did he start sitting up for extended periods like that??? Wah... he's really growing up huh... :)
Jul. 8th, 2003 09:43 am (UTC)

Last few times, he does sit up but not for very long....So today's considered one of his milestone :)

Glad to hear that Aidan is feeling much better. Tiff is down with a little fever after her 3rd DTPa + HIBa jab today but she is feeding and sleeping well thou a little grouchy. :(
Jul. 8th, 2003 07:52 pm (UTC)
Don't worry abt Tiff..a li' fever is fine..Aidan had it too but it passed soon after one day. Just give her loads of water and TLC :)

The poor chap looks so forlorn and pleading in the "Am I that contagious???" pic. Nice shot! And yeah, he's starting to look more and more like a little toddler with each passing day. Better enjoy his baby days man! ;)
Jul. 8th, 2003 07:54 pm (UTC)
Yeah..i agree..less baby-ish n more toddlish *wail*..Was just chattin with another mummy sayin that our babies havin lost their chubby fats not so cute already hehehe..
guess this is the start of the transition from baby to small boy :D..
Jul. 8th, 2003 04:35 pm (UTC)
Yep...you're right, a SAHM is really a FULL TIME mom. Even for me (WOHM), I can get some rest when I am sick cos my mom is around to look after the boyz. The only time she wasn't around to do that was when she went for a holiday and the boyz fell sick, followed shortly by me. I actually FAINTED in the clinic!!! *PANIC* The doc offered to pick Tim up from his school when I tried desperately to get up ;)
Jul. 8th, 2003 07:57 pm (UTC)
oh my..you must have been really sick to have fainted in the clinic..and your doc was really kind to offer to help out.
Yeah..u know, when u take over ur mom('s duties) once in a while, u really get to appreciate her help with ur kids. Ain't easy especially with 2 boys..
I probably wanna go back to work but a li' headache abt whether to get maid or have in-laws look after Aidan..well, one day at a time :)
Jul. 8th, 2003 04:49 pm (UTC)
I had wanted to become a SAHM too. Unfortunately hubby got quite a big % of paycut, so there goes my dream... luckily I've got my mum & dad to look after her. Both of them 'retired', actually my mum quit her factory job to look aft my girl, and dad followed suit to help my mum! - I always teased my dad that he's just trying to find an excuse not to work..but guess it's their perogative to be enjoying grandchild now...

So poor me have to continue to slog like a cow (btw, I'm born in the year of the OX) so so true...
Jul. 8th, 2003 05:04 pm (UTC)
Ya I salute all SAHM. Wanted to be one even before I was preggy but now I know I dun have the making of one. Was clearing my leave before I start on my new job and also to spent more time with Nicole, wow she's so demanding, cranky etc etc I almost go insane! Just wonder how my MIL managed singlehandedly, think I just have to be a WOHM for the rest of my life.

Jul. 8th, 2003 08:32 pm (UTC)
I think he did a li' too..especially his face..His cheeks aint tt chubby anymore..I probably grew a li' taller too so he doesnt have that overall baby-ish look..

Yup bugs normally get pass around when there is a baby :p I mean in my household, kekeke. But anyway, being a SAHM really takes huge amount of effort, patience and tolerance, which i don't think i have it in my. Even my Ant also agrees with me :p
Jul. 8th, 2003 10:53 pm (UTC)
heh..but i bet u are good in ur work so it evens out..agree..not everyone is good as a homemaker..if u ask me to cook/clean house/look after baby, I think I'll cry/die..Thankfully, it's just mainly the latter. I really wonder how some parents like Tracey does it..with 4 kids to boot..erh, or issit 5? And homeschooling somemore *peifu*

I like the "am I that contagious" I'm gonna load it down. So comical and think it will continue to make my day if I have a bad day or somethin at work.

SAHM ~ there goes the 14 days MC, 21 days leave and off time?
But it will really pay off the effort. You will see your children more confident and closer to you.
Did an evaluation on myself, think I am not cut out to be one cos my patience level is close to nil. Not very ideal for them.

life's just like that *shrug*
Jul. 9th, 2003 08:02 am (UTC)
Hmm..why would u want such a forlorn lookin baby's pic? I think if u have a pic of ur gal smiling gleefully, that would definitely make ur day. Actually, sometimes when I'm crummy..that's what I do..go tru all the cute li' Aidan pix and it makes me feel much better :D..well, I do have the real thing with me all the time too but he ain't always smiley heh

Actually..I'm honestly not the most patient person..u can ask my hubby...I get stressed really easily and am the type that just blow my lid in a second...it's really different when u are with a baby..I never realise I could do it till I did it ..i guess. I think of it as being a natural instinct amongst all women..

I think as in all cases, support from husband and family members/friends is really important..Helps u to keep going and remain sane :D...
