It's been a rough week. It always is when I return to work after staying home with Munch. It's hard getting up around 5 (7 AM would be so much nicer!), then slogging through the hour and half on the road to drop Munch at daycare, just barely making it before the bell and the kids walk in the classroom door. And of course it's report card time, meaning lots and lots of assessment and paper shuffling. And I finally got around to the blood work my doctor's been requesting. I've been avoiding it because I know I've been struggling with my blood sugars. And all of it just makes me stress so much that my emotions are a total roller coaster.
So, when my head started aching and my throat felt sore on Wednesday, I gave in and called for a sub. There wasn't much rest happening though, since the Munchkin was home. But later that evening, while she waited for AudioDad to help her get ready for bed, Munch climbed onto my bed for a quick snuggle. I asked her what she liked best about her day and she replied, "Staying home with you, Mommy" then she patted my head, took my face in her hands, and gave me a big kiss on the forehead. Just when I'm at my wit's end, she somehow makes it all better again.
PS- She and I are much better now, thank you (and thanks to lots of Sudafed and Tylenol!) And, AudioDad and I are headed off to see Wicked tomorrow!
