Today's motivation is 0. Taking care of two sick kids with another sick adult in the house is very exhausting. I seriously cannot count the number of loads of laundry I have done in the past 3 days. And, it isn't over yet. When you sign up to be a mother you forget about all the other 'jobs' you have, nurse being one of them. I love my children more than anything and would do anything for them. However, they have taught me that being a nurse full time is not for me. I have a huge respect for anyone that works in the health field.
So for all you moms (and dad's), may God grace you with His presence when you are holding your nose, trying to console your sick child as their head hangs over the trash can or toilet. May you find comfort in the clean laundry, knowing that the puke smell that seems to linger in your nose will eventually go away. Be thankful for flat ginger ale, dry toast and most of all Lysol. Be thankful that these sicknesses usually only last for 24 hours, per child. Remember that your child is so thankful they have you to take care of them and that the bond you are creating will last a lifetime.
What I am thankful for today:
my kids on the road to recovery
being a mommy
