From Bean to Sprout

I discovered Henry’s spirit animal last night, around 12am. The crocodile. I looked it up online this morning to confirm my suspicions. The spirit animal of the crocodile is a symbol of primal energies and survival. Henry was pretty much using up all his primal energy to fight me last night as I tried to stick the nasal aspirator up his nose.  He even did the trademark crocodile death roll to get away from me. Now that’s channeling!

So I guess this is my way of using humor to diffuse the tension of tending to a sick baby last night. He was up pretty much the entire night just wanting to comfort nurse.  Today we’re taking it easy. PJ party time and pretty much hanging in the bedroom. No fitmom for me today since I don’t want to pass this on to the other babies. Hopefully it was a one night thing.


Sorry about last night mom... It was a survival thing


Let the PJ party commence.


I don’t know how babies do it but even when they’re sick, they want to play and move and steal the laptop away from you…
