If you are a parent, grandparent or great-grandparent you know how heart-wrenching it is for your little one to be sick. But you also know that sometimes our little ones bounce back to normalcy within a day or so. Or even sooner.
Well, Lucy has wrenched our hearts today. She hasn't been full-blown sick, but just a bit under-the-weather.
There's a little secret in our household to what helps Lucy feel better ...
|"Yellow banana popsicles!"|
(Shhhh, don't tell but she's eating Granddad's yellow banana popsicle! Hey, he's not home, so it's fair-game, right?)
Later this afternoon the sky had clouded as if we were in for a downpour. I noticed my favorite trees all in bloom and wanted to get some pictures to share on here. But I got distracted ...
|"I wonder if I can break free!"|
|"I can bribe Granny with a kiss."|
|"This window sure won't budge!"|
|"I'm going Higher-up now!"|
Yes, our little ones tug at our hearts when they are sick. Lucy's feeling better now, and will be back to her normal self tomorrow. And you know, I think the prayers & banana popsicles really work ... well, and a "little" determination too!
Afterword --- Well, things really do change in an instant with little ones. Just in the past few hours, our little princess has gotten sick again. We suspect that she picked up a virus from the doctor's office yesterday.
Mrs 'Joe describes the ordeal here -- our big scare & biggest relief.
It's going to be a long night in our house ... but hopefully Lucy will feel better in the morning, and ready for another one of Granddad's banana popsicles!
