Daddy Talk: Sick baby

Milo's been sick for the last 5 days...gah.

It has been a tough set of days, the boy has had a high temp and been lethargic. There really aren't a lot of things to do with him but ride it out. I don't know what my parents did, probably the same things I'm doing: Worrying and administering ibuprofen.

One of the things I find hard about being a dad is being passive, relying on him to do the bulk of the getting well. It's really hard to watch him suffer thinking that I could help somehow but not being able to do much.

I don't think I will get past that feeling of wanting to help him whenever he gets sick or needs help.
