Not My Best Moments

When Sophia is sick I go into deer in headlights mode.

Before having Sophia I would have guessed that I would be super mom when my child was sick.

This is not the case.

I get so upset seeing her sick that I just want to curl up in the corner in the fetal position.

I don't know how mothers and fathers cope when their child is seriously ill.

I can't even imagine the pain. I hope to never imagine.

I am trying to be the best for Sophia. I know I am doing the best I can.

She has pink eye in both eyes now and a cold that won't quit.

She has barely eaten in 3 days. She is miserable.

Eye drops are sheer torture for her and for me. They should be outlawed.

She woke up from her nap today and wouldn't open her eyes she was in so much pain.

I think my heart broke in a million pieces.

I need my mommy.

Why do we live where no grandparents live??

Ohhhhh, I am so sad for both of you!! That does not sound like a fun time at all! I would totally be the same way if Makayla ever got pink eye, so you are totally normal! :)

I don't know how parents cope when their babies are seriously ill, either! I have been counting my blessings lately because my baby is healthy. It's the little things in life....

She'll be okay soon! Hang in there, Mama! :D

P.S. It REALLY sucks not living near grandparents, huh? Why do we do it to ourselves?!?!?

Poor baby! Hope she is feeling better in no time.

Oh and btw, I'm the same way when my kids get the stomach flu--totally freeze up and cannot deal with it AT ALL.
