I don’t get sick days or vacation time as a parent but I do have help occasionally. My mom came over so I could take care of myself and rest. She even brought me a care package.
While her visit was a welcome surprise, I knew she wouldn’t be able to do that the whole time I was sick. On the other days, I was extremely grateful for my son’s love of books. His favorite books change but on that day the winner was Dr. Seuss One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish or as he refers to it Fish Fish or Two Fish.
I was especially pleased he felt like “reading” to me since my throat was sore and going out. He picture read to me until he was distracted but it was adorable to watch. I capture moments like this to remind me not every moment is epic some are just sweet memories you hold in your heart.
