under the weather

comfy sick bed in my bed....from stale Vernor's to extra fluffy pillows
(and a little brother who wants to be next to his ailing sister-well, on the floor).
homemade chicken noodle soup for days.
motrin. vick's vabor rub. cool air humidifier.
lots of kleenex soft tissue, because it's just better than tp.
midnight 'rocks' in the blue chair.
tons and tons of extra cuddles, lovies, and head rubs.
more stories and books in one day than in a whole week.
i hate seeing the 'sick eyes' in my babies.
not being able to make the hurt go away just plain SUCKS.
when they melt into your arms and breathe into your neck so close- you never
want them to move.
hate that i can't take the pain away for them,
but love that they want and need me, mommy, to make them feel just a little bit better.
loving these little people
who are feeling much better now!!!!
