I Don't Have The Power
I love my son (and daughter) dearly. I love nothing more than to hold them and cuddle with them. My son, especially, is Mr. Cuddle Bug. However I am now on day 3 of holding my son nonstop. That is not an exaggeration to enlist sympathy. I have LITERALLY been holding him every waking and sleeping moment for 3 WHOLE days now. Granted he has been sick and beyond lethargic. The most activity he has had is changing positions in my arms. It’s heartbreaking, really. However there are only so many consecutive days one can hold a child, sleep with a child and be the receptical of said child's vomit and diarrhea. There comes a point where you just can't do it anymore. I'm pretty sure I have reached that point.
