It Keeps Me Going

Last night was INSANE.  Between both girls, I ended up waking at least once every hour to attend to one or the other of them.

I'm guessing this is just a preemptive warm-up to having two kids sick at the same time.

At least there was no vomit.

Anyway, Bean's coughing was ridiculous and kept waking her up, which in turn frustrated her to no end, which in turn made her scream.  Literally.

Instead of jumping out of bed like my pants were on fire, I figured that if I pulled her in between us, she'd be easier to calm down and the screaming?  It would stop.

Fortunately, I was right.

She calmed right down and settled onto the pillow in the middle of the bed. Then she rolled towards Shaun, patted him on the back and said,

"He's my best Daddy."

And then she closed her eyes and fell asleep.

Heck, for that kind of sweetness, I'll let her put her limbs in my ribs snuggle between us anytime she wants.


  1. Sometimes it's the sweet that HAS to balance the not-so-sweet.

  2. Those are the things that keep us parents from running screaming into the street!

  3. I love how thankful you choose to be to cherish these moments with your fam :-) you're amazing! I love you!

  4. LOL as sweet as those moments are it never ceases to amaze me i can have one sick be singing and holding him and telling him how much we love him and he will scream in my ear that he WUUUUVVVVS HISSS DADDDYYYYYY
