Sick Days and Popsicles

Wednesday’s I usually get to run outside since Josh works from home. Unfortunately, I was up all night with poor J. It was really sad and really exhausting, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I love that he calls my name when he needs help and when he snuggles up to me and asks me to scratch his back. Josh also was extremely helpful. I won’t go into detail, but lets just say he helped with some ‘dirty’ work and he got some snuggles too.

I remember in Jr. High I got really sick, and the best thing ever was when my mom would walk in the room and have a popsicle or the best foot rub to offer.

I didn’t get to do what was on my schedule for the day, but being a mom takes first priority and I’m so incredibly grateful I get to do that. Seriously, I feel so blessed that Josh works so hard(2 jobs) so I can be home with J.

So, here’s what our day looked like. Filled with Popsicles, back scratches, cuddles, and a lot of gatorade. Oh, and lots and lots of Lysol and several loads of laundry.

After his first bath he just wanted to chill for a sec. Then he requested his ‘comfy clothes’.

For dinner I made chicken salads. I chose an herb and garlic marinade for the chicken, and grabbed all the fixings we already had in the fridge. Simple and delicious(and fast;))

what comforts you when your sick?

what’s your favorite kind of popsicle?


About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    awww, he looks so cute went he’s just huddled up on the carpet with a towel. I know I’m not a toddler but I still occasionally have those curl up on the carpet chill out moments 😉 Hope he’s feeling better soon!

  2. Poor baby! You can just tell he doesn’t feel well from those pictures. I hope he’s feeling better today!!! Naps make me feel better when I’m sick…always naps.

  3. Aww, I hope is starting to feel better!! I love my comfy clothes when I am sick as well. 🙂

  4. Poor J! I hope he gets better soon, and I hope you get some rest! When I’m sick all I want to do is relax. I don’t have a certain food I like every time, but I like to not have to do anything.

  5. Poor buddy! My favorite is rootbeer popsicles, and I like to eat Mrs. Grass soup, its super brothy, and I always eat it out of a mickey mouse mug my aunt gave me when I was little.

  6. Aww I hope he feels better soon!! You are such a great mama for taking good care of him!!
