Perfect Moment Monday

I'm home today with Emma, as she had a fever of 101.5 this morning. We're resting the day away, as we were unable to get a doctor's appointment for her until 4 p.m. (Which I'm assuming means we'll be home tomorrow as well, as she'll probably have antibiotics prescribed and they'll need to be in her system for 24 hours before she returns to school.)

This morning we've watched TV, cuddled in my bed, and hung out. A little while ago I asked Em if she'd like me to read to her. She responded, "Yes, but can I sit on your lap?" My sweet girl...newly turned 5...where has the time gone? YES you can sit in my lap! Let's savor it while you're still small enough to fit on my lap. All too soon you'll be sitting BESIDE me when we read. And then you'll be reading independently and won't have much reading time with dear ole' mom anymore.

This was a "perfect moment," for two reasons. First, because I cherish time with my sweet girl. And second, because I love that cuddles from Mommy still help Em to feel better. Sighs.

That is so sweet. Those moments of physical closeness are priceless.

I hope that your daughter gets healthy soon, and that you stay healthy!

While I was sick this weekend, my little guy wanted to snuggle in the recliner. I was trying to avoid everyone (to not spread my germs), but you know what? Him lying beside me in the chair was better than all the cold medicine in the world. I know these days are almost gone (he's 6), so it was worth the risk. lol.

I’m visiting from to check out your Perfect Moment Monday.

I don't like it when my kids are sick, but I do like their snuggles, hugs and loving.

I hope she gets to feeling better soon!

That is really sweet. :) I have fond memories of being cared for by my mom when I was sick, and I hope my kids have the same. You are a great mama!

Awww that's very sweet! I hope Em is feeling better, soon! Enjoy the cuddles though!

Mr. K. Beckstrom said... it bad that I thought you were going to say that she got sick all over you while sitting in your lap?

Hmmm...maybe I've been around middle-schoolers too long. =o)

On the serious side..that is super sweet!!!
