Gratituesday- Blessings in Difficult Situations

It started on Thursday night. My went into Meadows room to check on her and there was my baby girl sleeping in puke. Gross! She was better by Sunday morning... Then Hudson loses his breakfast!

By Sunday night Hudson is very dehydrated and starts complaining of back pain. Off to the Out Patient we go.

Sitting there was sooo boring... but I am blessed with a husband who texted me several 30 second videos of himself reading Green Eggs and Ham.

We arrived home at about midnight. Exhausted boy and exhausted mommy.

Meadow was chipper in the morning though. So alas I dragged myself out of bed. And then... there was a knock at the door. I opened it to this face:

... and breakfast. Coffee and a sausage and egg biscuit for me, yougurt parfait for Meadow and a muffin for Hudson should he feel better and want to eat.

Thanks Anita!

The other blessings were the extra naps and snuggles sick children give you.

Ugh! Sick time can be a blessing with lots of snuggles...and friends who are there for you are certainly a blessing :) Hope everyone feels better soon!

I'm glad to hear everyone is on the mend. Definitely something to be grateful for.

I have experienced this all before with my kids, but the past four days it's just been me! I almost never get any kind of sickness, but my head has been the one in the commode! Yikes! My sweet hubby made the kids dinner last night, though...thank God for him, and for my 3 girls who took care of their sweet! Glad yours are all on the mend! Looking forward to linking up to motivate me monday next week!

I'm glad you all are doing better. I hate it when my babies are sick. It's almost like it is harder on the mommas!
