I got home late this afternoon after helping with all my kids for the past couple of days. The drive home
took 3 1/2 hours -- normally an hour & a half drive...
bumper to bumper traffic heading southbound on the interstate.
Maybe the traffic was my distraction today... I sure was heartbroken to leave them.
Lucy & Tag both were so sad --- Tag hugged me and whispered
"you can't go... you take such good care of us" ---
and when Lucy hugged me, she whispered in a broken voice
"I miss you already... I wish you could stay"
Simply. Heart. Broken.
Jacqueline has bronchitis
Lucy has bronchitis and strep throat (Tag says "struck throat")
Tag has pneumonia (Tag says "men-own-ya")
Michael had a back procedure yesterday in the middle of all of this
And so, Granny has come to the conclusion that three things should definitely be illegal ---
*** Four year old boys should NEVER have pneumonia
(no need to elaborate on this one)
*** Mommas should NEVER be sick the same time their babies are sick
(Mommas need rest too when they're sick)
*** Dancers should NEVER be so sick that they're expected
to lay on the couch to recuperate
(their legs are made for dancing & stretching not for laying still)
I love these kids
heartbroken when I left them today
sure pray they all get better soon
