Even babies get the blues...

Bumper had a bad day. And Mama is sad. I knew it wasn't going to be a good day right from the get go. Bumper turned up her nose at everything this morning at breakfast. Lunch was the same. Even the Baby Mum-Mum was rejected. That stuff is like baby crack. No fever but no energy either.

On our walk she just lay back and kind of slouched. Even during the feeding of the squirrels, she just turned her head to watch. She usually pulls herself straight up and eggs them on. Every so often she would let out a little half-hearted cry. It was the saddest walk we've had in a long time.


She cried when Dad came home.

Finally when dinner came around, she ate something. I was relieved but still worried. I know deep down it's nothing much. Just a bad, bad tooth day and maybe a mild cold. But I'm still sad and worried. This is the suckiest part of parenthood. The uncontrollable stuff.

I hope my little lady feels better in the morning.

That photo is breakin' my heart. Poor bumper, give her a kiss for me. Today (Wednesday) is such a crap weather day, hope you two can just stay in and snuggle.

oh, lookit that poor sad little face! Poor sweetie. We are having molar movment now, so pumpkinpie is having some times too, when I just can't make her feel better, and I hate it. (also wish she'd stop biting her own arm to make it feel better! It looks alarming)

I hate days like this. We had one a couple of days ago.

Must be the crap weather.

Hope tomorrow is better.

Oh the poor sweetie. And poor you. We had a couple of days like that last week too.

Poor little Bumper. I want to do a song and dance routine while offering colourful balloons and a sugary treat. Would a TimBit bring a smile instead of the rejected Mum-Mum?

At least your pensive babe wasn't full on having a crying melt down.
