"Tired" doesn't begin to cut it.

Kali would NOT sleep last night. She was awake every hour or so. I put her in her pram next to the bed so that I could reach out and push it back and forth if I needed to. I am so naive. She screamed until she was picked up and cuddled.

Why did I coddle her, you ask?

She just had her shots on Monday afternoon, and she was running a fever and just wasn't herself. Under those circumstances I don't feel right ignoring a crying baby or making her sleep on her own.

So here I am, exhausted, with a crick in my neck and a sore shoulder from cradling her while I sleep. And the princess is bubbly, smiley, and ready to take on a new day.

If anyone needs me, I'll be on the couch.

I'm glad she is feeling better. I would have cuddled her too!

Oh yeah, shots will do that. Just keep pushing the tylenol and motrin when she looks even a little bit cranky.

She should be better soon. It takes a few days. ((Hugs))
