Fever and Bath tub Poop

Waking up to a little person crawling into bed with me and  a warm little hand touching my face saying “mommy it’s morning.” Instinctively I pulled him close and we just laid there cuddling, no words necessary. Just a short while later and the husband asked how I got him to cuddle for so long. I explained to him that I didn’t think he felt good. My response was simple.. Mommies just know these things, this is motherhood.

Sitting on the couch rocking him back and forth. His head lying on my chest with my chin pressed to his hot little forehead. It feels like 101. Not wanting to get the thermometer yet, as he needs my comfort. Isn’t it amazing how the mere touch of our children and actually know their temperature, no thermometer needed. …This is motherhood.

The husband is gone to work and while still rocking little buddy, mini -me decides she needs a bath. Asking her to wait, while I take care of buddy, she begins to wail. Letting her cry for a few minutes, I decide it’s easier to just put her in the bath. So while carrying 3yo to the bathroom we get her bath ready. It will keep her occupied after all…This is motherhood.

Finally check temperature and giving him medicine for his yep.. 101 degree temperature, we settle back on the couch rocking back and forth, back and forth. This is motherhood.

Rocking buddy to the point he is almost asleep, and I hear the words ” MOMMY!! There is POOP in THE Bathtub!!!!” Shit ( no pun intended) , she just pooped in the bath tub!.. Yep, this is motherhood too…



I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.

  1. Yep. Been there. Am still there. Sorry! Doesn’t it seem like everything happens at once? When something is up with one child, the others start having fires you have to put out too! Hope all is better soon : )
