Happy Monday fellow peaches! Is fall treating you well?
This time of year is typically a favorite of mine, but "October of 2011" will forever be remembered in our household as the year of never ending illness. Since the beginning of the month, my family (including myself) has encountered the stomach virus, endless coughing, sniffles and this past weekend, croup. Fortunately we've experienced croup three times already with our older son and knew just what to do to avoid a 2 am trip to the ER. (30 minutes in a steam filled bathroom and my baby was breathing normal again.)
The ironic thing about being a mother and being sick is that we cannot stop going. We cannot rest much. We must still cook, clean, comfort, nurture and discipline. Our job as "Supermom" never ceases to exist.
Today I'm honored to be featured as a "Supermom" over on another blog, Polish and Panache. I hope you'll click over to read more about my life as a mom! I certainly don't have all the answers but I've come a long way in the past five years.
Fortunately, our health is on the mend. I just hope we've built up enough immune system to cruise through the remainder of the season unscathed. Be sure to visit here again this week for a big crafty reveal and a yummy recipe for quick and easy chicken and dumplings. They're so, so good.
