Poor Ben

My poor baby is sick.  I hate when he's sick.  I think that's part of being a parent though.  When your kiddo is sick, you feel terrible for them.  The night before last, he didn't sleep well at all.  He was all clogged up and could barely breathe.  He had a cough and everything yesterday.  Last night, he was up all night and woke up with a fever of about 101.  He never gets a fever.

Here's a couple of pictures from last night of my sicky boy:

I've had him in bed with me, in our pajamas, all day and we've been watching Cars on repeat.  It's his absolute favorite movie.  We've read books, and I brought a few of his Cars toys up to watch the movie with us.  I'm trying to keep him loaded up on Sprite too.  He doesn't get pop often so it's kind of a treat.  Shawn also brought him a Ben sized basketball when he came home from work on his lunch with more sprite and some Motrin for the little man.

I haven't slept well in the past 2 nights because he's had me up.  I think I've totaled about 6 hours of sleep in 2 nights.  I'm worried that whatever he has, I'm going to get so I've been taking advice from other people.  Trying to get rest whenever possible, and drinking lots of fluids, especially orange juice.  I don't really feel well but I keep telling myself that it's not because I'm getting whatever Ben has, it's because I'm exhausted and that I'll catch up on sleep tonight and be fine in the morning.
