You know how you know time stands still? When you can't gauge it. For example, you look at the time and it is 3pm. And you think IT'S 3 PM ALREADY??!! How can that be, I just woke up?And the next second you think, IT'S ONLY 3 PM??!!? I am ready for bed!!
Yeah. Both my children are sick. The kind of sick that even though Tylen@l helps keep their fever down, it never goes down enough. The kind that makes your knees weak and your head feel like a cottonball full of rocks. The kind of sick that doesn't let you eat. Mostly because you are sleeping; but even when you wake up you still don't want to eat. The kind of sick that makes this momma stare at them while they sleep because there is not too much I can do. Well, I pray, and pray, and then pray some more.
The kind of sick that makes time stand still.
Of course, today is their pediatrician's day off. So I did the next best thing.
I called my mom.
And she promptly went about making her best jewish-grandmother chicken soup. My dad just dropped it off and I am not kidding, BOTH kids got up and ate it!!
But why am I surprised?
Granted, they both went back to sleep after they finished it, but at least they ate something. Something good for sick babies.
So, as time stands still, I pray that I don't get as sick as they feel, though I am definitely battling something.
