This morning I am finding myself ultra-sensitive. Even the seam in my underwear is hurting. (I'm sure it's because of the week I've had!) So I came downstairs and found that my 5 year old was already up, had gotten herself a glass of soymilk, and was sitting by the fireplace with the laptop on. She had accessed Barbie.com. (A hideous site that frequently hangs up and frustrates her .. but she is addicted anyway!)
I was apparently moving pretty slowly, and my kids are used to my mornings being rough, so she said "Hey Mom! I'm taking care of myself this morning so you can just help yourself to all the advil and coffee you need. You'll feel better soon. If you need me to help you wash your hair, we can take a bath together in 48 minutes."
My middle son had made coffee so that it would be ready when I woke up, made toast and jelly for himself and his little sister, and thought to add bananas to their tray "because I always make them eat fruit".
The oldest is still asleep. Good grief, what I would give to be able to sleep like a teenager again!!!
Not sure what happens in 48 minutes, but it's awfully nice to know that my children are so resilient and sweet! I'm gonna hang on to this for a long time ... because sometimes I worry about how having a FM mom must be rough for them, but today I am so encouraged ... they are SUCH GREAT KIDS!!!!! They don't sound too 'ruined' to me!! :)
