Yesterday I learned...

How to sit still for 5 hours.

How to pull my pants down while holding a two year old.

How to pee while holding a two year old.

How to wipe while holding a two year old.

How to pull up my pants while holding a two year old.

How to sanitize my hands while holding a two year old.

How to eat one handed while holding a two year old.

How to be content while covered in a several coats of vomit with a bile topcoat.

How being 100% devoted to someone else can prevent you from feeling how sick you really are. And that it hits you like a ton of bricks as soon as the crisis is over.

How doing nothing can sometimes mean the most.

She's all better now.


I, on the other hand, am feeling quite miserable with some sort of headache/body ache/sneezing/coughing/need my inhaler-type something or other. And she woke up at 4:30 this morning. LOUDLY. Dude. Thankfully, Josh took the first shift with her, made me coffee, and then we switched off. He's a good man, that one.

I'll be around today, reading here and there when I'm not languishing on the sofa...but chances are I won't be doing much in the way of commenting. My brain is off duty, and brain-free commenting is a bad idea. ;)

Get some rest, chica.

And add a little vodka to your orange juice.

Kellan said...

So glad she's better and sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you have a good day - I liked the list. See ya.

Kristin said...

I'm glad she woke up "better" and I'm glad your husband rocks like he does.

Hope you get a call today!

Chrissy said...

I'm so glad to hear she's better. I hope you're able to get some good lounge time today to recover. Hope you feel better.

I think all things happen for a reason b/c I was on chron.com and just happened to click a blogger with a link to your page (I typically don't read blogs). Anyway, I have been mesmerized for the last hour going over your journey with Kaytar. Please know that I have both you and your sweet baby girl in my prayers. As a mother of 3, I constantly worry about by kids and I am glad that your motherly instinct lets you know when Kaytar needs you. Be blessed and I am praying for you and your family.
