    So sorry. When your little one naps, you try n nap too. Even if it means just closing your eyes. That's what I used to do. I would turn on some soft music or the tv on really low. Hugs

    I can relate to times like that.  I'm up now...and I don't really have a reason.  It seems like there is always so much to do and definitely think about.  My son was sick at one point over the holiday.  Our whole family had a virus and it was the pitts.  Hang in there!  ((HUGS))

    The only thing that ever helps when I can't turn off my brain (and that happens to me ALL the time) is if I sit down and write a list. First list is of everything I need to do...second list is everything I am worried about, stressed about. Somehow writing it down helps my brain to stop going over it again and again...kind of like the worries are in safe storage :)

    I remember when my little one was sick before he could speak...it is so hard and scary because they can't tell you what they need or how bad they feel. I used to get so anxious until the fever would break and he was resting comfortably...so sorry! My thoughts are with you. Feel better soon...both of you!

    PS What a cutie!!!
