I Love Being a Mom

I remember as a child (and still today), that when I'm sick, there's nothing better than having my mom by my side rubbing my back, making soup, or just watching a movie with me.  That is what we've been doing for the better part of the day.  We also threw in some puzzle time and cuddling with books.  Gracie, my oldest had a hot little head last night and woke up with it this morning.  She had to miss school and was not happy about it. 
This is how Gracie looked most of the day.  Poor little thing! 

Emily, my youngest has the sniffles and is a little lethargic as well.  Although, when I brought out the camera she managed to smile and say cheese about 50 times!
Not sure if you can see, but her left nostril is a little runny!

  They are both very quiet and moving slowly; and those who know my kiddos know that this is not the norm for them.  But I sure will drink up the cuddling, nuzzling and caring for that I can during this time. 

Gotta love sisterly love.  Notice that Gracie is still wearing a crown??  A princess' job is never done!
 Get well soon girls... this quietness is really starting to freak me out!


  1. You just love them so much when they're not up to's still true today. If you catch what they have, call me - I'm always down for an afternoon of movies and backrubbing :) This was a very sweet post, Ashley :)

  2. Aw sorry they aren't feeling well but I'm happy you are making the most of it! And I hope you don't catch whatever is going around!

  3. Thank you! I've actually been pretty lucky to not catch what these girls have in the past. Time will tell... :) I just hope Charlie doesn't pick it up. That's all he needs after what he went through!
