Last night Ben and I were interrupted mid movie, (yes we actually tried to sit and stay awake for a full 90 minutes at night), by our toddler coughing, sputtering and trying to breath through a phlegm filled throat. It was a horrid, startling sound and sad to say we have a sick bubs in the house. Our sensitive toddler turns uber clingy to Mum when sick to the point he won’t even let someone else wipe his bum…everything has to be done by Mumma, even if we are mid nursing-the-newborn.
Today though, amid sneezes, coughs and some extra crying, I am thankful for grandparents. For the selfless acts of our parents who go out of their way to love, support and give even more than we deserve. Both sides showed their love in action today and I can only say thank you with a huge smile of relief and appreciation on my face.
My littles are so blessed to have two INCREDIBLE sets of grandparents to cherish and love of them through their lives. I myself have been blessed with the same type of adoring grandparents and can hardly find the words to express how immensely joyful it makes me to know my children have this to grow up with.
