Matthew Asleep



I drew this picture of Matthew sleeping. He has been having a rough time with an ear infection that won't quit. He has to take a very thick and gloppy antibiotic, not the pink one. Then he caught a cold. Also, he has a lump in his lower eyelid that won't go away. This particular evening he had a fever of 103. So I put him into bed with me. Since I was staring at him anyway, I thought I would do a quick sketch.
My poor sweet hunnybunny. We had such a relatively good winter without much illness, but when it rains, it pours.

I hate it when my kids are sick! I so hope he feels better soon. What a yucky way to start the weekend.

Thanks for visiting too!

Best wishes and Happy Mother's day,
Natasha.

Aren't they the most pathetic little creatures when they are ill? You just want to enfold them in your arms and make it all go away. You sound like a good mom :-)
Get well soon Matthew!

Poor little one. Sleep is the best thing for him right now. Hope he feels better soon. The drawing of Matthew is very sweet. When my kids were little, I would go and stand in their room at night and just watch them sleep and listen to their breathing. They were my little angels.

I'm sorry he's not feeling well. I hope this comment finds him better. This sketch is beautiful. I agree with Garden of Daisies. I loved watching my little ones in restful sleep.
