Some days it feels like our sick season started in November and is still continuing through today. We missed another week of school this week and I’m about done. I feel disconnected from my own body. My mind is worn from taking care of everyone and also trying to take care of myself.
Trying to find the positive in every scenario, I got to spend lots of extra time snuggling the kids this week. They climbed up into my lap a little easier. And I’m happy to report today they ate us out of house and home.
Everything in sight. I’m not even kidding. I don’t know how their little bodies took in so much food. Normally this would have had me thinking about another grocery order. An emergency store stop. This time, watching them eat after a couple days of not really feeling like eating, it was a relief.
When Brayden smiled up at me and told me that he was feeling better today, I could’ve cried. They played today, all day, for the first time in a week. It was a good day. So while those sick feelings felt like they were never ending, I pray watching them have fun and eating lots of yummy snacks, that this feeling is never ending.
The feeling of knowing we overcame another obstacle. Days that turned into a week of misery are now gone. We can focus on the fun. I don’t know if they’ll have the patience for a movie night tonight, but I’m hoping for one more night of snuggles.
Thinking about Kindergarten on the horizon, I’m going to soak in every bit of it. I hope you all had a great week! Just wanted to come here and give you an idea as to why I was MIA. Thank you for the kind messages reaching out to check on us! We really appreciate it!
