Sick Kids

Today is a new day and I see the light at the end of the, everyone is sick, tunnel . J.D. got sick in the middle of last week, Kona started to get sick on Friday and Kai came down with it on Saturday. I have thankfully been well enough to take care of everyone, but don't feel 100% myself. Being a mom to two sick little boys, while J.D. worked, was rough and gave me a good dose of mom guilt. I wanted to cuddle them both all day, give them what they needed right when they needed it, but that wasn't possible. My lap just isn't big enough for both of them to cuddle/sleep on, they both needed something at the same time, which meant one of them was waiting, Kai would cry anytime I put him down and my mom guilt was building through it all. I felt like I wasn't giving each one, 100% of me and to be quit honest I had a short fuse at times. I had to remind myself multiple times that I was doing the best I could, because I was. Being a mom isn't easy, we all need to give ourselves grace because we are doing to best we can. The past couple of days haven't been easy, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, doing anything else, but loving on my babies.

 A little brotherly love makes everyone feel better. XOXO
