Loralai always knows what to say to make me feel better.
I’ve been poorly for over a week now and I can’t seem to shift the headache, it makes me squint and everything! Getting out of bed has been tough, going to work has been hard and trying to give all my attention to L has made me feel even more like a zombie! I have a crap immune system, I have an underactive thyroid and I am currently experiencing a low white blood cell count. So the odds are against me, I always catch the colds/bugs and then it takes me way longer than normal to shift them.
This time around it’s really effected my mood, I’m not sure if it’s the constant headache or what but I have been down in the dumps. Loralai has made this weekend for me with her crazy jumping on the bed, singing ALL the Trolls songs, her cute sentences, ah they make my heart BURST. We’ve been to the park, watched LOADS of Powerpuff Girls and played fancy dress. If those things don’t make you smile then I don’t know what will. I was having a moment on the couch today and Loralai said to me …
“It’s ok Mammy I pake care of you”.
We had a cuddle and then I stopped being a moody, poorly woman until she went to bed. I always feel guilty when I’m poorly, I know it’s not my fault and I know it’s super silly but I do. I’m just really glad I’ve had a weekend full of Loralai.
Parents and carers out there, it’s ok to feel poorly and moody, even a little guilty. Having a tiny human with you can somehow magically make those feelings, even if temporarily go away!
L being Tinkerbelle, cheering me up with her smile.
