The funny thing about being a mom though is that you really don't care. When your baby just wants to lay his or her head on your shoulder you don't care if there is snot hanging from their nose or if they have potential to blow chunks at any given moment. It's all about them and making sure they feel loved and secure even if you can't fix what is hurting them. There is nothing more heartbreaking to a mom than seeing their baby miserable.
Now I am not saying that having a sick kid is all cuddles and nurturing bliss. I have not slept well in over a week and my fridge is bare. I am tempted to run to Trader Joe's for the basics but I am sure that others will give me dirty looks when they see Midge coughing pathetically on the organic apples. I miss Jazzercise, which I have not done since early last week. But these complaints are a blip in my lifestyle, and I am trying to enjoy a break from the normal fast paced life I lead. Let's hope the illness comes to and end soon!
