I am sick. Really sick. So sick that I broke down crying on the phone with my mom today and she called back a few minutes later to say that she had booked a ticket and would be here tonight. For the millionth time, I have the best mom. Ever. She is amazing. I haven't been really sick in years and years. This is by far the sickest I have been since a while before we had kids. I have never been home alone with the girls and felt like this. I started feeling kind of yucky a few days ago. Yesterday morning I was still doing okay. I knew I was far from 100%, but I was fine to be up and doing stuff. I even took the girls to a birthday party yesterday morning. But as the day went on, I got worse and worse. I went to bed early last night and woke up feeling like I had been run over.

The weather has been gorgeous here the past few days. I took the girls outside this morning and they played for hours while I sat in a heap on the front porch. I made them a little picnic and they ate outside, which they really did think was the greatest thing ever. And I had no mess to clean up. They took great naps and I seriously have thanked God about 200 times today for how good my two girls have been. Lucy has been nothing short of amazing. She could just tell how miserable I was and she stepped right up, like a little adult. She entertained Annie, she was so kind and caring, she cleaned up, and listened to every single thing that I asked of her. I am unbelievably proud of that child. Annie was great, too! So thankful for this because I could barely move today.

I am off to lay in bed until Lee Lee gets here. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to see her.

Hope you feel better soon! My husband travels a ton too and it is awful to be sick when you are taking care of the kiddos by yourself. Sounds like your mom is amazing!

Heather said...

Oh No! Hooray for Moms who can come & help!!!! Hope she gets there soon! Get Well.

Tara said...

Wow...Your mom is amazing! My husband was transfered and is living 5 hours away from us while I stay behind trying to sell our house. I had a week like yours last week with sick kids and then me not feeling good after dental work and an infection. It is no fun to be sick and taking care of kids. I hope you get better soon and Yay for the kids being so sweet to their mama today!

It's so hard to be sick when you are the mom! Mama's hardly ever get a break. I'm glad your mom is coming to help take care of you and the girls. I was recently sicker than I've ever been in my adult life. I happened to be at my parents (4hrs away) and my mom took care of me the entire time. It was nice. Felt just like old times. :)

Get well soon!!

And big YAY!!! to Lucy.

Shawna said...

Hope you will feel better soon, the greatest helper, your loving mom is coming, such a relief, and kudos to Lucy to step up her role as a big sister.

Ashley said...

So sad for you. Your Mom really is the best, isn't she?!? I hope you wake up feeling much,much better today.... but remember to take it easy for a while:)

Nicki said...

Feel better! You really are so blessed. I have have a few times lately where I have desperately needed a parent and there isn't a likelihood that mine will step up to the plate no matter how desperate I am. I want a LeeLee!

Norah said...

I really hope you are well soon. Is Annie feeling better? Moms are the best. We never stop needing them : )

Dawn said...

Moms are the BEST! Get some sleep and feel better!

Sherri said...

I hope you feel better soon! LeeLee is awesome. I got sick with a stomach bug Sat night. I called my dad to come and get Gracie. I went and got her around lunch today. Can you believe that she would not come and see me! She concerned on Sat night but today she was just mad! She loves to stay with her grandparents, but this is the longest we have ever been apart. She warmed up quickly. Feel better soon.

Susan said...

Lee Lee is the best! So sorry you're having such a hard time. Just let Mom take care of everything and you'll be back on your feet in no time. Sending lots of hugs and prayers for a quick recovery!

Becca said...

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon -I've had a nasty cold for a few weeks, and I always think about how in the world you're supposed to be a mom and be sick! Luckily my hubby's job is so flexible! :-)

Ronja from Germany said...

Get well soon! I hope today was much better than yesterday. So great of your mom to come and help you like this. That also is the only explanation for her not commenting as first :-)

Laura said...

I hope you're feeling better. Being sick like that is miserable when you're on your own with the kids. I'm so sorry. Aren't moms the best?! I'm glad yours is there to help you through this. Get lots of rest and take care of yourself!

Norah said...

I hope you are okay and on the road to recovery. I just realized you haven't posted in a few. I hope all is well.

Carrie said...

Hope you are feeling better soon!!!
