I took a day off on emergency leave today because Ethan came down with the flu and had slight fever. Must have either been contracted from the little girl he played with and hugged in church last Sunday or just a side effect from the chicken pox jab he had.
He still looked his usual self but slightly tired-looking. He slept for 30 minutes in the morning and another 30 minutes in the afternoon. I breastfed him the whole day long and I decided to breastfeed him for lunch too, as well as give him as much fluids as possible. When he woke up at 3:45p.m., I prepared some organic carrot noodles which I had bought some weeks ago. I cooked the noodles with some egg, lettuce and a little bit of ikan bilis powder. At first he would not take it, and kept turning away, but when I put the bowl of noodles in front of him with a teaspoon and showed him how to use the spoon, he became VERY interested suddenly…. not sure if he was more interested in the spoon or the food la…but anyhow, I managed to get him to eat a few spoonfuls. Feed the flu, the say…
Get well soon, my darling Ethan boy! I know Ethan enjoyed me staying at home with him today as much as I did…. I could really get used to this! 😉
