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…
