Day 14 in my 30 Days of Outfits Challenge: November 14.  Yes, I am adhering to this challenge so faithfully that I’m even posting my lolling-around-at-home-in-sweatpants outfit!

Lil Tot is very sick.

He suddenly woke this morning at 4:30 AM with a temp of 101.7.  I gave him some ibuprofen and he went back to sleep.  By 8 AM his temp was around 102.  Throughout the day, though I kept giving him ibuprofen every 6 hours, put him in a lukewarm bath, placed a compress on his forehead and an ice-wrap around his neck, his temperature kept rising and the medicine wasn’t bringing it down.

He finally fell asleep at 6 PM with a temp. of 103.9 degrees Farenheit.  He woke up 45 minutes later and puked up the few grapes he’d eaten during the day, along with most of the juice he’d drank that afternoon and the Bendryl I’d just given him to ease his dribbly nose from his sinus infection (which he’s had for 6 weeks!!).  Of course.

He spent most of the afternoon prior to this lying in a heap, crying and unresponsive.  Of course he always gets sick on Sunday, when the doctors’ aren’t open!!

I know I may look relaxed here, but believe me, this day was anything but relaxing.

So when your child is sick, all bets are off when it comes to fashion.

The shirt was a fun DIY using fusible web and quilting fabric.  It’s actually a similar design to a Wildfox Couture t-shirt I saw awhile back and for the life of me can’t locate the inspiration photo.  (If anyone’s seen it before, please let me know!!  I think they manufactured both a yellow and a pink version.)  Ohwell.  You’ll have to trust me on that one.;-)  Tutorial coming soon!

And yes, my hair is in pigtails.  I never wore it in pigtails as a kid.  I figure I better do it before I’m like 80 and I’m officially not allowed to by The Fashion Police (or other Concerned Citizens).

Hope all of you enjoyed a better Sunday than we did!  (Especially poor Lil Tot) 🙁
