S.O.S. Sick Kid Aboard

The title just about says it all. My son has been sick since Sunday with high fevers and a sore throat. At first I thought it was just a little bug that would pass as quickly as it came. However, I was so wrong. He has been fussing and whining A LOT since Sunday. I try to be a patient Mommy and I try to remind myself that it is not his fault he is fussing or hurting from being sick. But to be honest (as I am to a fault sometimes) my patience has ran thin. As I write this blog it is midnight and he is still fussing. Every time he falls asleep it is not for long, he wakes back up crying. I know he has to be exhausted because I am. I think the part that is causing me to get impatient is not the crying it is the fact that he is inconsolable. When he starts fussing he will not talk to me, listen to me, or answer me. I ask questions like “would you like a drink?”  And “would you like some more throat spray?” Or do you want Mommy to lay with you?” But no answer just crying and rolling all over the bed. I am a doer so I get frustrated when I can not fix it and make him better. I know this quality or flaw however you may see it is really going to get me in the next few years as my tweens go through their teen years. But nevertheless it is a need I have I guess you could say. I don’t like leaving problems unsolved it drives me crazy. So you can imagine the circus that is going on in my head as I try to “fix” my baby boy.
On the bright side I did take him to the Dr. He gave him some antibiotics which in my mind should work immediately LOL. I am now wondering how many doses of the antibiotic it is going to take to at least get him some relief. Because it is so sad to watch him hurt like that knowing he has had all of the Tylenol and Ibuprofen he can have for the day.  And of course when I do get frustrated the guilt kicks in. I feel terrible for not being more patient when he is so sick. So you see this is a lose – lose situation I have here. Without patience I feel guilty and with patience I am still not getting any sleep tonight.
So Mommies and Daddies what are things like in your house when your child is sick?

A Cause Close to my Heart

In a blog post on my Tuppermamma Blog I posted about a woman who was influential in my life. In this post I wrote about being a teen mom. When I thought I was pregnant I went to an organization called Comfort Care Women’s Health to have a free pregnancy test. I did not know that I was going to be getting so much support along with it. When I took my pregnancy and received a positive result I was distraught but the counselor knew exactly what to say and how to help me calm down. I was worried about how my father was going to react. The counselor held my hand when I was crying and gave me a lot of advice on how to tell my father. She also gave me information on many resources that would help me during my first trimester. Also when I found out that I was pregnant with twins Comfort Care Women’s Health donated a lot of items for the second baby. They were very supportive during my whole pregnancy.
Comfort Care is having a Stride for Life ti raise money. And this year I am very excited because my twins will be joining me on the walk for the first time. I feel like we have come full circle. Comfort Care helped us so much and now we can help them together. Please check out this wonderful organization here and if you feel guided please donate for our walk on this page.

The Lesson and The Humpass

Yesterday was one of those days when it seemed I had a million and one things to do. I have to admit when I get busy like that I sometimes become unable to think about anything else but what I have to do. It’s like unithinking. Even though I make myself a to do list I will revisit  it in my mind over and over fearing that I forgot to write something down. I am not sure if it stress that causes me to sort get moody or irritable.  But yesterday turned out to be a lot different. Caleb and I were at Books A Million on one of my many stops I had to get to yesterday. And I was staring at the health food books looking for a book that seemed to allude me while Caleb was looking at a globe that was right behind me. All of a sudden Caleb got so excited and started saying “Mommy look it’s a Humpass.” I turned around and he had the most excited look on his face and was pointing at the compass on the globe. I thought I was going to pee my pants laughing. The  stress from the day just melted away. I was so happy, I actually sat down and gave Caleb a HUGE hug.  

So yesterday in all of the stress my four year old son taught me to just take it easy and enjoy your day no matter what you have to do. I know I will probably not always remember this but it sure did make a difference in my day.  I thought to myself “so what if I forget something” there is always tomorrow. Because what good is today if I can’t enjoy it.
