My sick baby {+Cauliflower Recipe}

My poor sick baby.. It started Saturday,  and of course the doctors office is closed so we have to wait until Monday to bring him in. So it started Saturday with a cough, he sleep okay, but wasn't eating like he should have. I noticed when we had breakfast (lunch) He loves pancakes, but didn't even touch them. I went to work that night to come home to a really sick baby. His cough is worse, he will barely eat. & I've tried everything! And he is waking up all through the night. waking everyone up!
[ Needless to say aside my insomnia last night I was woke up by him talking & crying in the next room at 4 am & I had to be up at 5:30 for work. ]
Josiah trying to sneak in a nap at 6pm!I don't think so!

I took him to the doctor yesterday & waited for a good two hours before getting seen, just for them to tell me there is nothin they can do. To give him Claritin & it should be gone by Thursday. Well I sure hope it does go away soon cuz I can't take anymore sleep-less nights! When he gets sick.. he is really whiny and clingy, & I'm talking a 40 pound, 5 foot 7 inches {just kidding} boy who wants to be picked up all time! lol

Last night I made tacos, and also some Roasted Garlic Cauliflower, I LOVE vegetables! ( I could have used that in my facts about my self yesterday but in the words of Josiah.... oh well! lol ) This is how I make it;

Set the oven to 450,
minced garlic (I use garlic powder as well) , olive oil, 1 large head cauliflower, separated into florets, Parmesan cheese & black pepper to taste. First I bring the cauliflower to a boil. take out water. grease the casserole dish, I don't go by the measurements listed & I also add red peppers for heat. I just mix everything together in that casserole dish,
 I love pepper - so I cover it with pepper & I don't use salt, Put in the oven for about 30 minutes,
 toss around cauliflower, cover with cheese, turn off oven and turn on broil for five minutes and......

We've been sick around here little hasn't been eating much, but I have given him some toast or banana, and that seems to sit well with him. Also, for sleeping, have you tried giving him some tylenol or anything before he goes to bed? I don't like to drug my little up too much, but they need to rest when they're sick and mine has a really hard time doing that. There's also Hylands Cough and Cold nighttime syrup, that's all natural. I found it at WalMart and likes that. It helps keep his cough down. Hope you guys start feeling better soon!
