Finally stopped in her tracks

On her 2 1/2 year birthday, Quinny finally slowed down. The kid is usually either asleep or running full speed. We have been lucky enough up until now to have only dealt with minor colds. On Friday, she woke very early from her nap. She had her first fever and was very tired. She and I cuddled under a blanket for two hours on the couch. She didn't move once. For the kid with endless energy, who usually can't sit still for more than a minute, this was unheard of! While I loved the cuddles, it was bittersweet. She drank loads of coconut water and eventually put herself to bed at 5pm. By the time I went to bed, her temperature had come down on its own.

Luckily, the colds that hit the girls and me seem to be on their way out. On the downside, it looks like Jenn is succumbing to it. Tis the season!

Miss Q: Not herself on Friday afternoon.


  1. :( Sorry to hear that you guys are sick too. We've had terribly sore throats and congestion, but no fevers.

  2. Is it sad that I liked it when my hyper kids were sick. The quiet and calm was welcomed. I also liked having an excuse to put them in front of a movie with no guilt. AND I liked babying them. These are sure signs of munchausen by proxy I'm sure. :) ha ha
    Hope you guys are feeling better soon.

    1. Not at all - It was "nice" to have my hyper little Q in a calmer state ;) She watched 2 hours of kids' shows that day with me. We have never had the TV on that long for them!
