This was the only quiet moment we had yesterday. My whole day was thrown off by Emily's asthma flaring and two hours at the doctor's office with her. Followed by a million errands, sports, and a very sick Emily clinging to me through it all. Finally, I thought it was over. Tom and Andrew had gone to bed early because they weren't feeling well. Libby had turned her light off and Emily had just gone upstairs. I thought my day was over and breathed a big sigh of relief that the crazy-busy storm of a day was over. I looked behind me, saw the little punkin peeking at me and snapped the photo.
And then the calm was over and another storm took over. Emily's asthma cough got a bit panicky, we called in a doctor neighbor and the crazy took over again and the day - and night - got a little bit longer. Luckily, Em is fine - just in pain from all the coughing. We may end up at the doctor's office again today to get her some pain relief.
Most of this week has been like this - I plan out each day carefully and something happens to blow it all out the door. Crazy. And crazy-busy. As I'm sure many other mothers can relate to. There's nothing to do - you have to go with the flow and try to enjoy it as much as you can.
I'm just trying to find moments in each day where there's a calm during the storm to take a few deep breaths. Such as blogging right now. :) Let the day begin!
