Sick days...

Hi! I hope that you all have had a wonderful day!
Last night was a prelude to this morning,... one of my kids( I have two boys 7 and 8) had a very high temp last night.  He awoke this morning at 4 am parched! He didn't sleep till he had a nap this afternoon around 3pm!
I was the official couch accessory next to his everpresent backpack filled with his favorite things (movies, toys, this and thats), the remote, and a blanket.  Needless to say that I got nothing done!

Although us moms worry over our little one's health and secretly checking work email when they aren't looking,  it makes us feel super special that when they feel at their worst you are the best thing for them.  Your simple presence makes them feel better, and having you to cuddle up to seems to taste better than that icky medicine! (love!)

It all just makes you wonder how much love for you can fit into such a fevered, glassy-eyed, little body. And because you matter so much at that moment, you put the iphone down, stop staring at the clock, and remember what exactly is important to you.  The rest can just wait, that's why you have sick days...

Take care of yourself and yours
