Days Like These....

Days like these make me happy that I have big girls! There are days that I find myself wishing that my girls were babies again. This usually happens when I see some cute kid somewhere or I happen to hold a baby. But then, there are days that I am so glad that they are not babies, or even toddlers. I am glad that they are self sufficient young women. Today, is one of those days..

I still feel like crap. My throat hurts. My bones hurt and my body is sore. I can't stop coughing. I have been in bed for the past 2 days. Had my girls been younger, that would not have been the case. Sure, I still would be sick. I would still feel like crap. I could feel like I were on my deathbed. But, I would still have to get up and tend to the girls. Unless, of course, Danny was home. He has always been a great daddy & hubby. If he was not at work he would tend to the girls and their needs. Still does. But now, even when he is at work, I can stay in bed and not have to worry about my kids not eating or being bathed. I don't have to help with homework or get them ready for bed. They do that all on their own. PLUS, they bring me my water and my meals. To.my.room.

Tomorrow is another day. When I feel better, I will miss not having little ones again. I will miss that the girls really don't need me as much as they used to. That they can, basically, make due on their own. But at the end of the day, I am still their mom. And if I had to, I would get up in a heartbeat and do whatever they needed me to.
