Not Feeling It

Last night, as we were going to bed, I told hubby I didn't feel like going to church today. I was just tired and uncomfortable. Getting up to pee 4 times a night, plus heartburn does not make for a good night's sleep. This morning, I still wasn't feeling it but I got up and got in the shower anyway. We got the kids all bathed and ready. We packed the church bags, with snacks for the girls. I even had plenty of time to get makeup on and my hair mostly done.

But once we got to church, Thumbelina started complaining of a headache. She sat by me and just wimpered through the sacrament. I took her out in the hallway and let her sit on my 'lap'. About 15 minutes after we left the chapel, she starts yelling that she's going to puke and we have to go to the bathroom NOW!

So today, I am thankful that we went to sit in the foyer. I am thankful that she is old enough to recognize the puke feeling in time to get to a toilet. I am thankful that her hair isn't long enough yet to be in the way.

But I am wondering if maybe we should have just stayed home.

THIS is my future? Bring it on. Of course, I don't know that 4 children are in my future, but if there are I hope that a few times I get out of church for a sick kid!

♥ Oh man! I too am SO grateful for the fact that my kids are able to tell when they're going to puke! It's nice that they have the comfortable couches in the foyer too! :)

I'm hope they feel better soon!!!
