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.
