September 29, 2010 While I was sick. . .
Yesterday I was sick. I think that when moms are sick, our children should go in to hibernation. I have previously posted a funny article about moms being sick here.
I have discovered many things while on my day “off”.
While I was sick. . .I saw my older kids step up and fix breakfast and lunch for themselves,
While I was sick. . .I realized there is NOTHING on T.V.,
While I was sick. . .I became extremely thankful that I am not bed-ridden,
While I was sick. . . the girls discovered how many pieces one piece of paper could be cut into,
While I was sick. . .Sweet T. “tattooed” her name into the Baby’s arm with a marker (thankfully it wasn’t a permanent marker),
While I was sick. . .my purse was pillaged through in search of gum or any other treats I may have had,
While I was sick. . .the girls decided to leave their mark. . . on our wall. . . outside
While I was sick. . . the girls ate a package and a half of chocolate cookies,
While I was sick. . .Sweet T. climbed Mount Mini-Van,
While I was sick. . . the older kids worked a little on their school work without being asked,
While I was sick. . .The Baby pooped outside
While I was sick. . .the kids drank half a gallon of Silk
While I was sick. . .my house remained messy and cluttered. . .until my better half came home
While I was sick. . .I realized how much I truly love what I do on a day-to-day basis, although there seems to be little rewards or thank yous, and it can be tiring and monotonous. I love being a mom who enjoys time with the kids. I love being part of their daily lives and teaching them how to take care of each other and themselves. I love fixing them food to eat, discovering new things, and doing anything and everything. . .but being sick
