The love of a mommy

Before I had kids, I was afraid of what I'd do when they got sick. Well, it doesn't take long after having a baby to get over that fear. The "Mommy Instinct" takes over very quickly and you do whatever it takes to get them better.

Kaci woke up in the middle of the night with the stomach flu. We were up ALL night... you know what that consisted of. But, the love that a mom has for her child somehow gives you the strength to deal with it all. She is on the mend (I hope) and hopefully no one else will get it. I disinfected the whole house this morning and have done probably 10 loads of laundry since it all started, but I also lay with her in my arms, sharing a pillow telling it would be "all right" while she slept. Hopefully that Mommy Love is enough to ward off the germs.
