My past few weeks with little Mack have been.. interesting.
I'm sure every mom goes through this, but I feel like Mack has a super bad immune system. Does anyone out there have any advice for how to build it up?
Two weeks ago Mack had a really bad cold. Then he got over it and then a week later got the stupid cold again, which at the time I thought could have been hand mouth and foot disease, but who knows. Then like a week later he got an ear infection, then he was running around on the street on Halloween, face planted it, and chipped his front tooth (along with a bloody nose). Then he got the roseola virus, which is where we are at now.
This morning Mack looked up at me with his big puffy pink face and gave me a big chipped tooth smile. Man, I am failing at being a mom. My poor child. Oh, and if you get grossed out easily you might not want to look at the following pictures. - it is bad and it was weird lighting so the pictures don't even do the horribleness justice . The poor kid has the rash in unmentionable parts oh his body.
I feel like I should prepare myself now for a battle with the flu season. Ugh.
This picture is before he got Roseola, but after he chipped his tooth.


  1. That is the sickest thing I have ever seen. EVER! You are definitely a bad mom because a good mom wouldn't have let him get those diseases. For shame!

  2. Poor guy! I'm so sorry for both of you! I keep Aiden hopped up on vitamins that I got from our homeopathic dr. (a liquid and a pill that I mash up and sneak in his oatmeal each day) Thankfully He's been super healthy (knock on wood). If you want some for mack let me know & I can pick some up for him the next time I'm at the dr. In the meantime I'll be praying for a speedy recovery for that cute boy!

  3. Oh sad! A sick toddler is just the pits. I hope he feels better soon!! And you too.

  4. I am so sorry. That is tough. I hope he gets feeling better soon.

  5. You are not a horrible mother!!! At the same time Im glad its you and not me. Sick kids are the worst and I do think its your turn to have a healthy little man.
