Sick Baby Means Finished Money Lap Book

Hello, Friends!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week.  It has already been an eventful week and it has only begun! 

Well, we were suppose to have a two day week this week. Brayden ran a temperature of 104 on Saturday night.  We got his temperature down before bed and he woke up on Sunday with a temperature of 103.6.  Took him to the doctor (by then his temperature was 98) and the doctor said that he had a sore throat.  Sunday around 7 o'clock he was burning up again.  Took his temperature and it was 104.6.  SCARY!! So, we took him to the emergency room.  He had a chest x-ray, RSV test, and strep test.  All came back negative.  He just has a sore throat and a virus that is raising his temperature.  Friends, a temperature of almost 105 is super scary.  Glad nothing major was wrong, but hate that he feels awful.  

So, I had to stay at home today.  Brayden is better, but still whiny.  I won't know if I can go in to work tomorrow until we take his temperature in the morning.  Pray that my sweet boy is all better. One minute he's smiling and happy and the next minute he wants to be held and crying. Breaks my heart!

A sick baby means lots of free time while he sleeps.  So, I cleaned the house (sorta, I'm so tired) and finally finished my next lap book. It's been finished for about 2 weeks and I just haven't had the motivation to finish.  

If you want to win your self a copy, leave me a comment telling me your plans for Thanksgiving. I'll pick a winner sometime tomorrow night!  Good luck!

Lots of love,


  1. Sorry to hear about your little sickie...hope he is on the mend now. My thanksgiving plans are low-key this year since my Christmas plans are big!

  4. Family coming here= No traveling! Sorry your little one has been sick!

  5. Sorry about your baby! I miss those days of baby cuddles! I'm so excited about Thanksgiving because it is the first time I'll be home for T-day in at least 7 years! I am drooling thinking about all the delicious food my mom whips up.

  6. I hate it when my babies are sick:(! Good luck!! We are house hoppin' and spending time with family - can't wait! Plus, we are preparing for our son's birthday party on Saturday as well. Thanks for the opportunity.
    Happy Thanksgiving,

  7. Your poor boy. Sucks to not be able to help them understand why they feel so bad. I am traveling about 2 hours to see my family. Can't wait for some stuffing!

  8. Going to spend time with family and prepare for my maternity leave. Due with first baby Dec. 31st. Any long term sub tips for me??

  9. I'm in charge of stuffing at my in-laws! Then my family will do Thanksgiving on Sunday (to ease stress on us), and I'm throwing my bestie a gender reveal party on Saturday!
    Hope your little one gets better soon! And yes, high temps are scary for all!

  10. This will be my first Thanksgiving in my new house and I will be spending it all alone. Everyone else is traveling and since I have been in the house less than a month I chose to stay home. Both of my daughters are all grown up so they have new families now to split their holidays with. I remember my babies being sick and it was no fun. I would love to win your money pack.

  11. I plan to spend time with my family and maybe go Christmas shopping!

  12. It's hard to work on lots of things when my baby is sick. There were times that he can't sleep. Anyway, thanks for sharing this post. Months passed already, and I hope your child has already recovered. Don't forget to visit his pediatrician from time to time so that you can prevent illnesses in the future. And give him healthy foods. :)
