Recipe for a long day

Wake up at 5:15 to sounds of baby awake in crib.

Nurse baby for 40 minutes in vain attempt to get her back to sleep.

Give up, turn the lights on and realize that baby is not just warm due to cozy pjs.

Discover underarm temp of 99.6, and realize that she's been coughing on and off for the last 24 hours.

Cancel lunch date.

Call doctor.

Listen to baby scream every time husband tries to put her down to get ready for a nap.

Watch the clock approach 10 am, when husband is to leave for the day.

Yawn, and then yawn some more.
