My little boy is sick and I am able to take care of him. That's something I couldn't do for my girls. I wasn't able to carry them when they were toddlers because of my lack of strength and poor balance (especially in the evening).
At 11pm last night, I was tending to my little guys needs. I put him in clean pj's and replaced his dirty sheet with a new one. As I tipped the crib mattress on it's side, I couldn't believe that I was doing this so late in the evening. Back in the day, I couldn't put sheets on any bed, much less a crib! And to do it at night would be unimaginable! It's a great feeling to know that I can take care of my baby no matter what the circumstances.
Yes, I am exhausted and other chores around the house will have to wait, but in the mean time, I will give thanks for having the ability to take care of what matters most: my family.
Have a great day and stay healthy!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
