Sweet Child of Mine

This morning I was beat. I’ve been up every night this week with the newest members of the Madhouse; 2 eight-day-old kittens (if you’d like to read about those adventures you can check out The Madhouse Kitten Project; I even explain the temporary insanity thought process that lead me to believe taking in the kittens would be a good idea.

Anyway, this morning I woke up at 7:30am with the babies (that’s how we refer to the kittens) with only a few disrupted hours of sleep behind me. I woke the kids and told them they were going to have to take the morning shift – I was done, and went back to bed.

Four hours later I was awakened as my daughter entered my room carrying a tray – laden with food. My sweet child brought me breakfast in bed! Rian had made scrambled eggs and toast for me. She said she knew how I tired I was since I had the night shift with the babies so she wanted to treat me. My heart swelled with pride and gratitude.

I must be doing something right, sniff, sniff.

    How have I not stumbled on your blog before? I’ve enjoyed reading it and will be back. We have a lot in common as I blog about OCD and my son’s battle with it.

  2. This is wonderful, Holly. You’re doing MORE than one thing right, momma! I’m sure it was yummy on many levels, you know? Lots of hugs! XOXO-SWM
