My sister's boyfriend called me in a panic tonight because their 6 week old baby (my adorable little niece) wouldn't stop crying. My sister had gone out with a friend of hers, he was at home by himself with the baby. So when he called he said hey do you have the thermometer at your house? I said huh, no, why is the baby crying & he said I don't know, she feels warm and has been crying for the last 30 minutes, your sister is gone with her friend & doesn't have her cell phone! I immediately dropped everything & rushed to the rescue! My niece is the cutest thing ever (so I think)! By the time I got there she wasn't screaming like she had been on the phone, but she was still a little fussy. I notice that she was fussy this morning too when I kept her. I called my mom to tell her that the baby was okay & that I was going to bring her over to see her. So I took the little munchkin over to my parents house so she could see her grandma and paw paw (we're so country LOL)!
I was forced to be the meany and take her temperature. My parents, although they took our temperature rectally when we were kids, refuse to take her temperature with a rectal thermometer. She didn't have a temp, she was just fussy. I think she has a bit of gas, but that's all! I'm such a good aunt! LOL
