My Fairy Godmother

Today has been a rough day. I don't know why but this pregnancy just is kicking my bootie. I was up last night nauseous again. What is the deal with that? Not sure. But it sapped my energy today. I have been dragging all day. But I had stuff to do so... you know. I drug myself out of bed and did my chores.

The grocery store was my first stop. Then home to make soup for my families tonight. I made cream of broccoli. It was a soup day for me for sure.  Mid day I called my mom to see if she could pick up some bread bowls for me. She said she would be out in few hours to bring them to me. Just then my soup boiled over making a huge mess of my cooktop. Oh and the phone rang.

I was dead on my feet by this point so I turned off the stove and headed up to take a nap while Noble napped. I woke up 3 hours later to find my mother in my newly cleaned kitchen with my kids. I felt like Cinderella.

I love my mother. She is the best. I am so grateful to have her close and for all the help she gives me. Mothers truly are the best invention ever.

Icky now, a blessing later!

You are so blessed to have a wonderful mom! Mine is gone,and now I'm the mom, and grandma, but I live so far away from them, I can't do the special things for them. Bless her!

So glad that you have your mom near you. I did 4 of my 5 pregnancies far from extended family spending 1/2 the pregnancy struggling with all day sickness. My midwife would say "make sure you are eating at least 100 grams of protein a day and drinking LOTS of water." Hope you feel better soon!
