Thank goodness for mothers.
My mom put aside her busy schedule (no seriously, although retired she is the busiest person I know!) to come keep me and the boys company for a few days while Jeff is away on an elk hunt out west. And none too soon. She got here yesterday and last night our middle son started coughing ... and then was up ALL night coughing nearly continuously. It was fortunately nothing serious, just the case of our genetics making small bronchials and all the seasonal pollen and allergens colliding with a respitory bug. He was just miserable all day. Little did she know what she was getting into when she suggested coming over for a few days! And yet, that's just what mom's do best isn't it? Tonight Brayden (our oldest) was able to play Mite hockey during the intermission of the big guy's semi-pro league and guess who volunteered to stay home with my sick sweetie that finally was power-sleeping on the couch? Grandma. And not only that ... he was well on his way to healed when the other 2 boys and I arrived home. Moms/Grandmas. They sure are special!
(Now I'm feeling a sore throat coming on and my voice has gone somewhere on vacation ... do you think she'll stay a few more days?) haha?!
Quote of the day after trying to talk Easton into taking a cough suppressant so he could rest:
"If my kids are well enough to agree to take medicine, they are most likely not sick enough to really need it."
They make medicine no picnic that's for sure!
