Wordless Wednesday–Moms and Daughters


After an insanely hard and stressful couple of weeks, my body decided to mutiny.

“Not sleeping, eh?  I’ll show YOU!”



When the dust settled, the doc had cancelled the meds for bronchitis and prescribed kick-butt ones for pneumonia.

(Add in a double ear infection for fun.  Oh!  And some stress nausea - because every bedside table needs a fashionable “just in case” accent bowl).



To add insult to injury, the husband was working out-of-town. 


Mommio to the rescue.


She force-fed me Tom Yum Gai and yellow curry (spice level #4 = holy cow, I can breathe again!)


She told Itty Bit terribly embarrassing childhood stories about his momma at bedtime.


And she painted my bathroom.





The woman painted my bathroom, y’all.


(To say that she’s pretty high up on Mr. Daddy’s favorite person in the whole wide world list right now would be an understatement).



But just having here here, in my home, while I sneezed and sniffled and coughed and generally looked grody… was the real gift.


After downloading Mother’s Day photos tonight, I spotted one that makes me utterly unable to stop smiling.


So true to form - my mother and sister cracking up over a funny card.  It’s kind of our thing.  Makes me grateful for the little stuff that binds us.

You have the most awesome family! I'm glad to know that you truly appreciate that!

seeing ya'll laugh makes me laugh.. you need a good laugh and I am glad your mommy came over and made you rest.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Perhaps the doctors can prescribe something to knock you out and you can wake up again when you're not sick anymore. Love the picture. You're so blessed to have a great Mom.

Um... we're living parallel lives, I think. We just had that nasty horrible awful flu/cold thing with pneumonia for one of our kids go through our house too. And, my mommy came and took care of us too.

Aren't our moms awesome? I really hope my kids think I'm as awesome as I think my mom is.

I think that last sentence made sense. :-)

Even though we are now moms ourselves, it feels so good to have own moms come take care of us once in a while. :)

I hope you feel better soon. *hugs*

P.S. Your pics of your mom and sis cracking up... priceless!

No thanks required - I loved every minute of it - one doesn't get to baby their kids as often after they reach their 30's - must take advantage of the opportunities! I was shocked there was no bathroom blog this morning with so much blogworthy material out there - considering before the job was finished Itty-bit's pants,shirt, pajamas(twice!), hands, hair, the floor, and one of the dogs had also been painted a lovely shade of "Rain-water Gray".

Ohno! I am so sorry you have been sick. I was wondering why I hadn't seen you around lately. I am sending up some prayers for you and your whole family. There is nothing like Mom when you feel bad huh? So awesome that you have such a great one.

Foursons said...

Oh my goodness, that is the most fabulous shot EVER!

Sorry you've been so sick. Are you feeling better now? And where are the pictures of your newly painted bathroom?

Saimi said...

Ahhh, sorry you've been feeling so badly but nothing like Doctor Mom to the rescue!

I absolutely love that picture of your mama and sista!! It brings a BIG smile to my face!

Bethany said...

Sorry you've been feeling yucky! And your mom totally rocks!
