Well, guys, it’s official: I’ve turned into THAT MOM. The one that takes her kid to the doctor at the first sign of a sniffle, the one who Googles symptoms (although I know I shouldn’t), the one who texts her entire social network to see if anyone else’s kid has shown the same symptoms recently. It’s silly, I know, and I kind of hate it – but the reality is that having a sick kid with two kids is exponentially harder than just having one sweet one with the sniffles.
Good news though? Everyone’s well again (for the most part) and I only have about 20 more grey hairs. Which reminds me, I need to get my hair done badly to cover that goodness up. I’m not anti-aging – what a blessing it is to grow older! – but I would still be OK with having less obvious grey streaks. You know, just a vanity thing. But still.
This weekend I’m looking forward to sunshine, yard work, and celebrating the risen Lord. And really, nothing can compare with that last one! Y’all enjoy these links and I hope you have the best Easter!
