Small Hug Update

I actually have lots & lots to tell you about my hugging challenge but *sigh* I simply do not have the time right now. Poor Punkin Pie has just gotten over 4 days of what I can only assume was a cold/flu combo.

Ick and double ick.

When my kids get sick, my little world comes to a halt. Everything - and I mean everything - gets neglected and put on the back burner. I never realized just how tiring it is to take care of a small, sick child. And when all she wants you to do is snuggle with her on the couch...well, how do you say "no" to that?

It reminds me of a poem. A poem I don't remind myself of often enough:

Cleaning and scrubbing
can wait till tomorrow
For babies grow up
We've learned to our sorrow.

So quiet down cobwebs,
Dust go to sleep,
I'm rocking my baby
and babies don't keep.

So today, I'll be catching up on all the "house" stuff and, if I actually get it all done today, *laugh*snort* I'll be back to catch you up on all the "hug" stuff!

Oh I am so sorry she has not been well! Poor thing. Perhaps that will be the end of it, and you will have healthy kids over the holidays. Knock on wood!

Can't wait for the hug update.
