Super Mom

Thank you Mom

Last night in the chaos of getting Quintus settled and out of pain, making dinner and getting JJ and Zander bathed, I forgot to give Jason his medication.  By the time I realized this, he was already fast asleep in his bed.

I fetched his asthma pump and held over his face, without waking him.  Quintus came up behind me and said “You are such a good Mom.  That’s so nice of you not to wake him up.  Thank you”.

Then during the night we were up for 3 hours straight with Quintus throwing up and generally not feeling well.  I was up and down with him all the time.  Rubbing his back, offering water, giving medication.  Just before he finally fell asleep he said – “I’m so glad you are my mom”

Those words made the entire three hours feel like split seconds.

  5. Kids really are precious gifts from Heaven. My MIL (loathe that I am to admit something nice about her – but here goes:) always says that kids get to choose their parents before they ‘come down from Heaven’ when we’re pregnant – and that’ *such* a nice thought. I always think to myself when I’m looking at them, “thank you for choosing me as your mommy!”

    It’s great that Q is so in touch with his emotions that he doesn’t get embarrassed about saying such nice things – it’s very healthy, and shows great emotional maturity.

  7. You owe all those good qualities in ALL your children to yourself, Mel. Their thoughtfullness and sweet words of a appreciation and love is your blessings in return.

    Hope you all feel better soon. Hugs and kisses to your wonderful children.

  8. Calling Him Out

    That is the sweetest thing to hear those words. I agree these simple words make all the up in the middle of the night with sick kids seem like a bad dream. It is so great to be a mommy!

  13. Isn’t it amazing how such short simple words can fill you up. Hope you’re feeling better. There’s little worse than being sick and taking care of sick little ones. Hang in there.
