The dreaded, and I mean DREADED, Hand-Foot-Mouth-Disease is making it's way through our daycare. It's highly contagious.
O came down with it last weekend and spent most of the week at home. The poor kid has been miserable. He'll wake from a sound sleep howling and point to his mouth saying "Ow, Ow, Ow..." Tears streaming down his porcelain cheeks. Oh my poor sweet love!
I get some pretty serious canker sores from time to time. His pediatrician said Imagine having a mouthful of them... No.Thank.You.
And there's nothing you can do but try to make them as comfortable as possible and wait it out.
Thankfully he's better now.
This morning Finn said his mouth hurt. I took a look but didn't see anything but a little red spot on the roof of his mouth.
I'm praying he's just hungry for some attention too.
