Do you ever have moments where you just feel defeated? Moments where you feel some sort of oppression and feel totally helpless to change things? I have been feeling like that a bit lately. And, I am pretty sure I know the cause...and I am pretty sure I won't feel this way for long, but right now, I am just plain worn out and feel like I'm running on empty.
Eli is sick and has been for going on 3 weeks straight...and just a few days before that he was just getting over being sick for about 2 weeks...so it's been almost 5 weeks of him being under the weather. Johnathan has been sick off and on for the last month and a half too...and just now has come down with another double ear infection...just got over one a few weeks ago...and I am completely over them being sick...to put it frankly...I'm sick of it! ;)
Luckily when my little dudes aren't feeling 100% they are still relatively happy & active...so that's a good thing. Aaron always says that if they are "appropriate" then that's a good sign...they aren't really that sick...but still, I want them to be well...and to stay that way for a good long time! None of us get much sleep when one or more of our little hive is sick...and after a while that just wears on you. I am ready for some good sleep again, although, in the mornings after my cup o' joe I do feel a nice little perk, so that's good!
Anyways, I am just ready for my two precious ones to get better. I feel like we're the only ones that have sick kids what seems like all the time. Are we??? Probably not, but still, it makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong to have my little dudes sick so frequently. I know this is the time of year when coughs and colds abound...and all that goes with them...so I am very much looking forward to spring and hopefully renewed wellness for our little family.
Wellness, come soon!!!
