Last night I was exhausted! I couldn't wait to get to sleep. I get settled in bed and that's when it hits -HARD- I had overwhelming mommy guilt.
You see, for most of the week, I had been battling a bad case of mastitis-one of my milk ducts was plugged and infected causing fever, chills, fatigue, nausea, headache... If you have not experienced mastitis, consider yourself lucky; in my experience it's worse then the flu!
Although Ray was amazingly helpful and took great care of me, it's important for him to go to school and work everyday. This left my apartment, and more importantly my babies a little neglected.
So, I'm laying in bed plagued with a sleeplessness that I'm sure most moms have experienced, and then this song popped into my head:
Three Little Birds-Bob Marley
I realized that the kids were both still healthy and incredibly happy, the apartment could be cleaned and all was not lost! My stress was replaced by thoughts of spring and better days ahead : )
This song has a message that all moms could use sometimes.
I wish you a worry-free week!
