I have been home the last few days taking care of a sick child. I’m a little bit of an emotional wreck as I hate seeing my baby girl suffer in any kind of way. I hugged her tightly in hopes that her sickness could immediately be transferred to me. Insane right? I don’t care, if it could work I would do it every time she sneezed.
My poor girl was diagnosed with an ear infection. She has been running a high fever and feels icky. Good thing I took her to the doctor as soon as I noticed something off with her behavior and we caught the infection in the early stages. At least she thinks the antibiotics are delicious.
Last night, I planned on making a wonderful steak dinner with mashed sweet potatoes. Those plans changed when hubby suggested I prepare something hearty that my daughter will love. Spaghetti it is!
I prepared spaghetti just the way she liked it, with Italian Sausage and her favorite pasta sauce with warm garlic bread on the side. I made her plate and went looking for her and found her laying in our bed, half asleep. I asked if she wanted to eat and she said yes, it was her favorite. I left the plate with her in bed and went on my way. I came back 10 minutes later and she was knocked out and hadn’t even taken a bite of food. Poor girl.
This morning, my daughter wakes up crying. She is still running a fever and I’m freaking out. “What’s wrong” I ask. I’m literally thinking of getting her dressed to rush her to the hospital. With tears in her eyes she responds “Did you eat all the spaghetti? I didn’t get any spaghetti.”I’m shocked, a little amused, but extremely relieved that she’s not crying out in pain. I informed her we had leftovers and a smile appeared on her face. “Can I have spaghetti for breakfast?” she ask. The only appropriate answer is “why not?”
That spaghetti was delicious and my baby girl seems to be feeling a bit better. Spaghetti for breakfast may become a thing around our household. I wonder what other dinner for breakfast options there are out there?
