More and more as a mom, I'm realizing that I am helpless in many situations in regards to my children. Pilot reached his chicken pox peak last night and today...he was so itchy and there wasn't a thing I could do to help him except let him cry and hold him. It broke my heart to see him in pain like that. And I'm sure this is only the beginning of feeling this way. Standing by, watching, but unable to do anything but love and pray for them. Honestly, it feels terrible and I'm not looking forward to it. But life isnt always easy, is it? So for now, I need to enjoy this time in their life when hugs and snuggles usually make things better.
And next time I will remember to wash his blankie at a better time...not when he is in extreme need of comfort. (poor mommy decision this morning)
Here he is with his 2 favorite things...blankie and bobby(pacifier).
