Feel quite a bit better today. I think it helped to write my post yesterday and sort through my thoughts. So, thanks for reading and thanks for commenting - I was cheered by the support.
So, the poor baby is ill today. Not drastically so, but enough to make her hugely sensitive to any slight perceived or otherwise which might be perpetrated by her brother and sister. The lego figure which today she had decided was as precious as anything else in the house, was clutched to her chest all day. Any attempt to remove it resulted in shrieks of banshee like proportions. It has been prised away from her so she can go to bed and I can sleep without worrying that she's quietly choking upstairs. But it took sleight of hand and impressive distraction techniques, I can tell you! Calpol at the ready tonight I think!
Her 'woofing' like a dog is coming on fantastically though, illness or not. I'm so proud.
Hey, It's Okay
