I\'ve found that one of the hardest part of being a Mother, is seeing your child sick or in pain. I feel so helpless when my kids aren\'t feeling well. The only thing I feel I can do, besides the obvious, is to hold them and just let them know that they aren\'t alone.

Is there anything special you try to do for your kids when they\'re sick? Sing, dance, crack jokes, read to them.....?

I've found that my son loves it when I hold him or just sing to him. A hot bath really helps, too.

My son was just hospitalized with the whooping cough. The one thing I noticed that somewhat calmed him was me swaying and making up songs that made no sense. I am notourist for that I also sing an old cheerleading song he likes. It goes like this:

(Sing while bouncing and clapping)
We're going to the circus we are going to the fair;
To see a seniorita with flowers in her hair;
(Sing and shake it)
OH, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it if you can;
And if you can not shake it then do the best you can.
(Sing and Spin)
OH round and round and round he goes, where he stops nobody knowwwwssss (drag this out and start over)

It gets him calm and I can get a little smile.
