I earned my battle scars last week.

I did something this past week that I didn’t know that I would be strong enough to do. I took care of 2 kids sick with the stomach flu.  I can’t believe that I am admitting this, but; barf was my BIGGEST parenting fear.  I don’t do throw up.  It is actually one of the main reasons that I never really drank in college.

I was panic stricken when I got the call from daycare that I had to pick up Mini.  I had to ask the ladies there what to do since I luckily never had to deal with that before with Baby Bear.  The easy part was between she was acting almost totally fine and tried to play. It was a long night,but eventually Mini went to sleep and felt better in the morning. I was crossing my fingers that Baby Bear would not get it but a week later she was not feeling good either.  That was even harder since she had the thought in her head that she was sick now so she cried.

I couldn’t believe that in the moment I was calm and functioning. I found a strength that I didn’t know I had to make my babies feel better.

So glad that is over.
