Even though Momma didn't have many (if any) sick days left after using them for maternity leave and then taking care of Little One when she had Influenza A, a Momma just can't leave her sick littles. Momma Bear comes out. I have a more than capable husband that I can count on, but when they are so sick, I just can't let them go.
These were taken toward the end of her nasty brochiolitis road. She was nearing recovery, but still not well. I loved her little expressions in each of them.
There is no healing like healing in the arms of your Momma, Momma's make everything right. That's why I was so happy that Cody's mom could be there with us when Annie had Influenza A, and why I was elated that my Mom could come and help us when Annie was in the hospital with bronchiolitis. It's good to have Nana/Grandma around to help with the family stresses of having sick children. They help take care of Cody and I, the house, Little One, and most of all - have helped give Grace some of the attention she needs when we are focusing on sickie.
