One of the worst things a parent has to face is also one of the most common: illness.
I came home from rehearsal tonight to find Tink sacked out on the living room chair and learned she had a fever and a stomachache. I'm happy I was able to cheer her up a bit - it's amazing what a few silly faces can do to light up a sad one.
She's sleeping in the bed with my wife now who can give her much better TLC than I can - when the kids are sick I'm a nervous wreck. I've slept on her floor once when she was still in the crib and had a fever (just a minor one, too, but it didn't matter to me).
But still, she's in good hands :)
