There’s no good time to be sick!

Ever feel yourself getting sick and say to yourself, “I can’t get sick now…I have too much to do!”? Well, that is me all the time! I don’t get sick very often but, when I do I get annoyed. I should rest, sleep, drink water and enjoy the down time but instead I push through not wanting to give in thinking I’m lazy! Type A personality? I think so.

This week Adriah and I both got sick with head colds. It takes on a whole new meaning when you’re a mom who’s sick caring for a baby who’s sick. Wiping noses, giving lots of cuddles, slowing down to comfort her because she’s so sensitive!

So, I’ve decided I’m going to be taking it easy the next couple of days. Even taking naps…I’m a woman on a mission…get better before Saturday’s wedding!

I’m not very good at asking for help either. So, today when a friend offered to take Adriah for the morning so I could rest, I tried to talk her out of it several times. Finally, I gave in. I don’t have a lot of family that live close so my friends are my family and they love my little girl like my own sisters would! I am so blessed and thankful.

Hi again:

I just left a comment in regards to Ryan, Brianna and Sylas but couldn’t help not reading this post on your blog. I am going through the same thing now, and what a head cold it is! It sure hangs on. I can sympathize with you, when you try not let it get you down. I am the same way. I just keep pushing too.. but there comes a point when you just can’t anymore. I have a 9yr. old daughter, a 6 yr. old son and a 2 yr. old daughter… My 9 yr. old and 2 yr. old have had the same thing I have now, and I now realize why they were so cranky! It’s an awful virus! Now that I’ve discovered your blog I will check in with you regularly, I am a stay at home Mom, my husband is a busniess owner in Plumbing. Is your name Noemi and if not what is your name so I can address you properly. I live in Nova Scoita, Canada, and I am 36. How old is Adriah now? Isn’t motherhood fun??? I know, there are moments… but I love it!
