I haven’t felt much like writing recently! I really thought that no one was reading my blog anyway. Then I reminded myself that I didn’t start my blog for glory but as a cathartic way to de-stress!
These last six weeks have been particularly challenging as both kids have battled, cough, cold, ear infection, diarrhea and vomiting and strep throat!
There has been little to no sleep and more body fluids than I hope you ever have to deal with.
Last night as I almost begged my toddler to go to sleep and stop coughing (like that is in her control), I was so absolutely exhausted that I started to physically shake! I suddenly got a moment of clarity! What would the parents of those beautiful children, that were torn away from them Before Christmas give to be up all night caring for them?!
We take so much for granted, so tonight when I’ve given the antibiotic and I’m up again every twenty minutes, I am going to remind myself just how lucky I am that I still have a daughter to care for!
Thinking of all those who have lost a child…

    I read your blog! Maybe not every post – I tend to drift in & out of blogging – but I do. I’d been wondering why you hadn’t posted for a while.

    i know the feeling: I get very discouraged at how few people seem to read or comment on my blog too. But we write primarily as a it’s cathartic, as you say.

    Sorry to hear you’re having such a hard time, but great that you’ve managed to find some perspective. In world terms at least we’re very lucky, after all. I’ve had a similar year; things have gone wrong & when I get down about it I keep reminding myself of that.

    You keep writing, & I’ll keep reading: deal?

  2. Just found your blog and will be following and reading as a fellow mummy blogger 🙂
