Yesterday I got the mother of all colds, and Hogan, being a 4 month old baby, really doesn't care. He just wants to nurse and cuddle and play all day even though I am burning up with fever and have a steady stream of snot dripping from my nose. Being sick is one thing, but I have never had to deal with a sick baby, and that is something I am really not in the mood to try today, or ever, for that fact. And seeing that he has never been sick, he really doesn't understand that he is totally flirting with an indescribable danger. So in a feeble effort to keep the germs at bay, I am constantly dousing myself with that stinky hand sanitizer, which somehow manages to make me think he won't catch my cold, at least in a placebo kind of way. However, he will probably get drunk from all the alcohol they put in that stuff, and maybe that is not such a bad thing.
Anyway, I told him that mommy was sick and that he would need to entertain himself, so this is what he decided to do...
He told me while he was reading "But Not The Hippopotamus" by Sandra Boynton that he thought all the animals were jerks, but then they finally did invite the hippo to join in all the fun and he changed his mind...
