Yesterday (and maybe today, its too early to tell) I felt so, so sick. My stomach was in knots and I literally felt like I was having contractions all day! On top of that I felt super nauseated. My little sister also had these fun symptoms all day. I’m not sure what we caught, but it was nasty. This was my first time being a stay at home mom and feeling really sick. Like the kind of sick where your brain and body are mush and you want to do nothing but lay in bed. This is really hard to do when you have a mobile, very active one year old. I ultimately felt like a really lousy mom that made her baby play by himself all day until his dad got home from work. H was so good to keep himself busy and every once in a while the sweet little guy would come climb on my lap and snuggle with me. On a few occasions he’d even fall asleep in my arms which was the most healing thing that happened all day. I’m so thankful for him. He is such a good, easy baby. One of my favorite things about him has always been that he is a go-with-the-flow guy. Whatever is on his agenda for the day he just goes with it with a cute little grin on his face. I’m especially thankful for this today and am really, really hoping that I’ll feel better today so I can give him the attention he so greatly deserves!
