  1. Oh, hope he feels better soon.

  2. Oh poor little dude. Hope he is feeling better soon :)

  3. Hope he’s feeling better soon. x

    • Hope so too as although he’s not infectious, he’s not very welcome out in public and has been too itchy for preschool – aaarrgghh!!

  4. Aww poor guy! Hope he gets better soon :-)

  5. Ouch! Looks itchy :( Hope he’s on the mend now!

  6. I was going to say hope he feels better soon, then I saw the rest of the pictures and saw that he seems to be ‘feeling’ fine! Looks like he is in great spirits, just a tad rash-y! Hope that the rest of you don’t get it! Happy wordless wednesday, nice to see you playing along! And thanks for you comments on my blog last week – the weekend was quite hectic, so i didn’t get a chance to respond earlier!

    • Hello Sannah, why haven’t I done Wordless Wednesday before? It’s great fun, and inspirational too. Look forward to seeing more of your piccies.

  7. Ouch , hope he is on the mend too.

    • He’s pretty OK, but still looking very scrofulous this arvo. Hope he’s looking better soon. Papaya cream does help the itch.

  8. He seems to be taking it all quite well. Thankfully children usually tolerate illness reasonably well.

  14. Well that does not look like very much fun. Hope the itchies are finished soon.

  15. I hadn’t heard of that before either. Hope he’s all better very soon! He’s very cute!

  16. Hope the itching doesn’t wear him down. He looks in good spirits for the photos!
