Slice of Life hosted at the
Last Friday night I was able to catch up on some blog reading. (I know, exciting Friday night, right?) I read Amy's poetry slice about savoring those little moments like rocking a child to sleep. I commented that I treasured those moments too, except they usually happen now when one of my girls were sick.
Then early Saturday morning, one of my girls was sick with a fever.
Saturday night, sick girl. Rocked to comfort us both.
Sunday morning, same girl. Horrible barky cough.
Sunday afternoon, other girl. Missed going to Sunday School.
Monday morning, sick girl. Doctor said it was croup.
Monday evening, other girl. Missed her sister at school.
Tuesday morning, still sick. Cough still there, but fever subsided.
Tuesday evening, kissed the other girl on the forehead. Oh no...fever.
And so the cycle begins again. Off to the doctor tomorrow--
All before my brother's wedding this Saturday that we are ALL in and excited to where our purple dresses.
But until then --
I'm off to rock my baby girl to remind myself that in the middle of all of this craziness we call life and our endless to-do lists that this -- rocking my baby girl -- is the number one thing on my list because these moments will be few and far between all the growing up. Your thoughts and prayers for healthy girls are needed!
And after I posted, my friend Chris sent me this link: Because sometimes bedtime takes forever ... and it should. Those little moments. Beautifully written.
