Im Dont Feel Well. I Want My Mommy!

During our event my son has gotten sick and really had his first cough with a really runny nose. I did not realize how hard it is to be sick myself and take care of my little one. I have been feeling so run down and exhausted. But I had a moment of awareness that made me feel like wow I am lucky he adores me so much that he wants only me to hold him.
I know for me anytime I was sick as a kid I wanted my mom. She didn't have to anything just be in the room or near me. Sometimes when I stayed home form school sick she would get me grapes and french bread, two of my favorite things! It always made me feel better and feel special. Even if I was so sick it made her sick she never complained or wavered in her being my mommy! After I moved out of my parents house if I got sick I would want my mom then too! My sister and I laughed about that today that as adults and moms we still want Mom if we don't feel well.
I want to be that kind of mom to my son. I want him to know that not matter how I feel I am cheery and all his when he needs me. It was about 3 am the other night when I had my moment of awareness. My son and I were both coughing and blowing our noses and he sighed then laid his head on my lap. I ran my hand along his head over and over like a sweet little cat and he feel asleep. That's all he wanted was me to just be there, to be his comfort when he was uncomfortable. Since that night even thought I feel not so good I am being chipper and his hero when his nose is running or he just needs a hug. I forget sometimes I am what he needs, what he wants and who he looks for when he needs something. Its my gift in life to be his hero!
