Heaven Help Us

Heaven help us when the little ones get sick.

All I want to do is cradle them, wrap them up tight, all swaddled up, like I did when they were so tiny and fragile. I want to hold them and rock them until it’s all better.

It’s hard to do that when they are bigger, have opinions, are the grumpy sort of sick people, and are all arms and legs that don’t fit so well into a receiving blanket.

And heaven help us when they get the sort of sick that includes the throwing up piece; it’s enough just to not gag myself and be valiantly calm and caring without holding my nose.




Potential Root Canal

Gasp, gasp, gasp.

More nervous than a cat in a room full of rockers. Did I mention I’m not a fan of dentists? Not personally, but you know. Their profession is wonderful and helpful, but still. Not a fan of the visits.

That is all. Carry on.
