Our conversation went a bit like this:
Me: "well, i've been sick so maybe i just look ill."
Guy: "no, do you usually wear makeup?"
Me: I laughed and said, "yup, but with my pink eye i am not wearing any."
Guy: "oh, well you look a lot different."
NOT even 10 minutes later a woman i work with told me I looked better.
Me: "thank you. I'm not wearing any make up so i take that as a good compliment."
Woman: "many women have natural beauty and i think you look pretty without makeup."
So many people have different opinions. I knew this little fact but it struck me hard yesterday. The days where I feel ugly and down someone else (besides my amazing husband) thinks I'm beautiful!
Isn't that a little comforting to know?

TUESDAY: I went to work first thing in the morning. I felt awful and still sounded awful. I was scheduled but no one was able to come in and cover for me. Brady stayed home with Cooper in the morning until the 24 hours on the drops were up. He went to the doctor and picked up a slip that said Cooper was no longer contagious and took him to daycare. When I picked Cooper up at daycare he looked terrible! He just stared at me and could care less about what was going on. He coughed all the way home. Once we go home he was so clingy and wouldn't let me put him down. I gave him some tylenol and tried everything to get him to calm down. The only thing that worked was if I was standing and he was laying his head against my chest with his arms between us. Not fun! My arms were exhausted and I just wanted to curl up and sleep myself. Of course, as soon as Brady got home he was happy and cheerful like nothing was the matter. REALLY? I was a little upset about the whole thing. He went to sleep before 7 and slept until 8:30!
WEDNESDAY: I had called my work yesterday telling them that I would not be able to come into work becaue my baby was really sick. They were able to get someone to come in for me!! So I am home with Cooper. We are both feeling better than yesterday. Cooper is happy, cheerful, playing, and eating! His eyes look a million times better and not much of a cough today. Here is a picture of him this morning. Brady is still feeling sick and getting worse. I feel bad that he has to go to work today :( He's coming home for lunch so hopefully he can sit and relax for a few minutes.So hopefully we all start feeling better. It's a crazy time at work for the both of us. Without family or friends we struggle juggling work, a sick baby, and our own sickness. All of this will pass!
