If you’ve read Annie’s May summary then you’ll know how hectic of a month it was. Poor Jack really did have a difficult time with sickness, but he was a trooper through it all! 🙂

Night time sleep has been consistently good apart from the bout of sickness he went through. In saying that, he generally sleeps quite well when sick unless he has a raging fever.
Jack slept mostly well this month, but that was because he was so sick. When he gets sick he will come and ask me if he can go for his nap and he sleeps solidly for it.
This month we added bedmaking and putting clothes in the laundry hamper to Jack’s chore list. It’s a chore list in theory because it’s just a spoken expectation, not a written one. He generally does a great job with minimal supervision. He also loves to take his plate to the kitchen when he’s done. He’ll often offer to take mine and Shane’s too. (For a list of appropriate toddler chores, see –> THIS POST)
We all got hit with a WICKED upper respiratory virus at the end of March. It. was. awful.
Jack was the first to get it and it began with a fever. That lasted a couple of days and then the congestion started. He’s a really good kid when he’s sick. He doesn’t cry and go on, he just rests. I enjoy the snuggles that come with it but obviously hate seeing him unwell. The tail end of the virus left an annoying cough. Thankfully, he only coughed during the day and was fine at night.
We used about a teaspoon of Vicks in a bowl of boiling water 15mins before bedtime to vaporize the room. Along with having him sleep propped up a bit that seemed to really help in getting him to sleep well.
Things Jack’s Been Loving This Month
Until next time!
Hi! I’m Christine. I am a former registered nurse, turned stay-at-home mom, turned work-at-home mom!
Motherhood has always been my passion and blogging has only added to that and given me a creative outlet to share about the things I love.
As my blog has grown, my desire to share the knowledge of what makes my life less stressful, simplified, and more fulfilled has become one of my driving forces.
I have a heart for mothers that feel as though they are just existing from day to day and are longing for more. You can find out more about me and my family over on my ‘About Me‘ page.
