The look of parenting

I think that photo pretty much sums up my day. I took this while holding my sick 2 year old, hoping she may finally sleep for a little while. At this point we have had virtually no sleep for almost 2 weeks, no naps and averaging only 1-2 hours a night. We even broke our rule and brought her into…
