The Moment

I have survived a week of having two very sick children. I am not going to say that I was a good mom through the whole thing because it is not true. By Friday I thought that I was going to lose my mind. But through the whole crying, snooty, no shower, greasy hair, yucky mess I was- I had the moment where I remembered why I wanted to be a mom. That moment where a 1 year old puts her head on your chest while you rock her to sleep. The moment where a 5 year wants to watch an old movie with you just so that you lay next to her. These are the things that I am going to yearn for when they are older. The things that are easily forgotten. So I will take my week of sick kids just to have these few precious moments because it is all worth it in the end.
