Oh, those special moments

I was reminiscing the other day (yesterday to be exact), about the times when Jelly bean was running around healthy - chasing the cat, giggling, and throwing tantrums...ahhh how I miss those days...

No, really.

I don't know what it is about being the only healthy person in the just isn't fair. (Hubby is now knocked out on 3 drugs, while recovering from a torn muscle in his neck.) Not only do I have boogers to wipe, medicine to force down, dishes to clean and throw logs on the fire...but I have to keep my cool. Which on these days can be quite tough.

But I do it, maybe not with a lot of grace, but I do it. Because I love being a mom.

Because I love it when Jelly out of the blue runs up and says, "I love you mommy," or when she gives me those puppy-dog eyes and says, "Please". And of course when she smiles and spreads her infectious laugh...Yes, those are the moments that make being a mom -- special.

Some days are tough, some are easy...but you'll never get those days back, so enjoy every moment.

Forecast update: Hubby was able to use his new: Monster-blower yesterday. Even though his doctor has him on 2 different painkillers and a muscle relaxer...regardless of the warning of..."Do not operate heavy machinery," he insisted on snowblowing the driveway. Luckily no one was hurt.


How did Tim Allen put it...arhh, arhhh, arhhhh?

I seem to always be the healthy person, taking care of everyone else. Sometimes, that gets a little old and I think people should start taking care of me.

Poor thing. I feel bad for all of you.

Thanks. That snow wasn't the end of it, we got 2 inches of ice that night...guess who was lucky enough to chip it away?

Jelly is feeling better...still coughing and has a low-grade.
