Just a quick little post … I’ve caught a nasty flu bug and have been camped out on the couch for about four days. Thank you to Miss Adeline for repeatedly coughing in my face for the last two weeks and sharing this lovely experience. At least she keeps me entertained. Here she is with Scott … one of her favorite creative time stories to act out is getting married (she got the little silk veil from us for Christmas and the fake flowers as her bouquet). She has a fiance she calls “Scottie” and often wakes up in the morning poking me in the shoulder excitedly whispering, “Mommy, today is the day me and Scottie are getting married! I must go get dressed up!!” Then she returns a few minutes later in a fancy dress, wedding veil on, bouquet in hand, huge smile on her face and asks me to perform the wedding for them. Daddy is often a stand in as her groom … they are just too cute for words (forgive the iPhone shot from this sick mama).
It would be nice, however, to see a bit more compassion from the little people while I’m feeling so rotten (said jokingly, of course). Adeline said very sweetly to me this morning, “Mama, I wish you would get better and stop being so sick.” I am touched and respond, “Awww, you’re so sweet to think about how crummy mommy is feeling.” Adeline replies, “Yeah, then you can stop being so gross with blowing your nose and coughing all the time!!” LOL! Such a sweetheart, especially since she’s the one who got me sick in the first place (can you say, “Pleeeassseee, cover your mouth, Addie??”). Ha!
