Always a mother first

A sick little child is fast asleep and I’m hoping and praying that my little boy will get well soon. Tiny bodies like his shouldn’t have to go through being sick three times in less than two months. Especially when his illness lasts a week or more.

All three of us have caught some sort of cold, one worse than the last. I even took a late night drive to the grocery store to buy lemons and ginger. If only I could be sick for him, but I know it doesn’t work like that.

But I’ll always be a mother first no matter job I have or how old I get. Very reassuring in a way but with a great deal of responsibility. There’s nothing more comforting than to know that I can hold my baby boy and he’ll feel safe right in my arms.

The yearly autumn flue

The last couple of days I've been roaming around at home, having 'Fuller House' as a background noise while I looked after my baby and myself. We've been sick since Monday, sneezing every two seconds, wrapped in blankets and wool clothes. Sleep is definitely the best medicine and hot lemon tea with honey.

On another note, my brother had his birthday on Tuesday so I tried myself out in the kitchen and made an (almost) vegan cake. Some ingredients I didn't even find in the store so I had to use my regular non vegan supplies.

Today we're back to drinking lemon tea, cuddling up on the sofa and trying to get rid of the yearly autumn flue.

Weekend

Spring was right around the corner and then over night we were snowed in. Not literally but I was too scared to drive to work by myself so asked my dear father to take me. Luckily he said yes and even though I came 20 minutes late we all got home safe in the end. But after that awful long day, working 8,5 hours I could feel I was getting sick. So the last two days I’ve been trying to get enough sleep so that my body will recover before the weekend is over. Drinking tons of lemon water and tea. And lets not forget, I’m at tissue pack number six so it’s safe to say that my nose is bright red and a little sore.

No emergancy call needed

So I’ve been sitting on the same exact spot for the last three days. Sleeping, drinking countless cups of tea with the exception of a coffee and a hot cocoa here and there. I’ve catched up on some tv-shows but most importantly some well needed sleep. I can’t remember the last time I slept more than 9 hours in a row and for the last couple of days I’ve actually manage to sleep more than 10 hours a night and even sleep a little in the mid of day. And what I’ve noticed is that time goes by so slowly when you have absolutely nothing to do which is great because there is always something on my agenda, every single day. That’s probably why this cold came at the time when I was most exhausted from all the stress and work around me. I didn’t get enough sleep, I didn’t listen to my body and hear what it had to say and in the end non of the countless overtime helped me anything in my life.
