Trenton has always been a fairly healthy kid, but Charlotte has seemed to catch everything under the sun in her first two and a half years of life.
First were the recurrent ear infections. Tubes took care of those.
Then there were the UTIs – two of which required hospital stays.
Charlotte went through a short spell of not getting sick, but now it seems like she is catching the stomach bug every time the wind changes direction.
When Charlotte was a baby, I hated that she couldn’t tell me what was wrong and could only cry. I thought it would be so much easier when she could actually tell me what was wrong.
“I hurt, Mommy - I need go doctor” and “I want feel better” break my heart just as much as the crying and whimpering ever did.
Mom lesson learned– No matter how old your child is, whenever they hurt, you hurt too.
