#wcw is this beautiful soul who happens to be my mom. She is one of the strongest people I know. She has a huge heart. She has spent her life taking care of others. I wouldn't be who I am today without her. I strive to be like her. She has surgery tomorrow. Though I know she is strong I still ask if you can send all the good vibes her way.
Aunt Christy is getting braver and let her eat on her own at the snack tray. Look at my big girl 😢 She is probably the cleanest eater I have ever seen of all the kids I have cared for her age. She did however learn what happens to food in this house when it hits the floor. After that she kept trying to feed the dogs more.
Rae still isn't feeling good. After, playing at Grandma's all day she came here and spiked a fever. She cried for an hour before I could get her settled down and comfortable enough to stop the tears. She only slept for maybe 30 minutes and then was back up again clearly unable to sleep or relax. She wouldn't eat and wanted nothing but aunt Christy to hold her and rub her back. So, here we sat. I comforted her the best I could, but I know she was just miserable. Rae never cries. I knocked her in the head with the fridge door not knowing she was behind me hard enough she hit the floor. She bounced right back up and told me sorry. She told me! Sorry! The one who knocked her on her ass by bouncing the fridge door off her head, and she popped right up and said sorry like she did something to me! So, when this little girl who isn't afraid of anything, who loves things fast and wild, who's tough as nails, and finds things like slamming her head funny cries it shatters my heart. If she does cry it is usually quick and easy to get her to stop. I couldn't comfort her tonight no matter what I tried, and I could physically feel my heart hurt for her. I don't mind holding her and rubbing her back for hours. I don't mind messy diapers, snot all over me, staying up all night with her, her clingy stage, or anything else involved in loving and caring for this sweet beautiful little girl, but seeing her hurt and having no power to help shatters my heart. We sat on the couch for hours while I did my best to get her as comfortable as possible. I would have taken everything she was feeling if I could. Even these moments of caring for a sick, grouchy, snotty nose, cough like a dude little girl is a blessing a cherish. Mama ended up leaving work early to come get her. I pray she starts feeling better soon, because my heart just can not stand for my Rae of Sunshine to hurt. #sickbaby#poorgirl#poorbaby#agirlandheraunt#auntieandniece#auntiesbaby#auntiesbestie#auntiesheart
