anatomy of a sick day





things have been pretty puny around here the past few days...mama is sick as a dog.
(which always seems to creep up on me with the changing weather)
although, i can't remember the last time i was this down and out.

the job of being a mom surely doesn't stop when you're sick, but i've been getting lots of help from my matt and our mamas...finding pockets of rest here and there...and enjoying the novelty of bed head hair so tangled that it seems to stay in a ponytail even when i take the rubber band out.

so this is what my week looks like...terrible tasting herbs and lots of warm drinks and itching and itching to feel better so i can get my face close to my two little ones and smooch them silly.

  13. Sorry to hear you're not feeling too well. Though you still manage to take beautiful photos. Wonder, does talent transcend sickness? :)

  15. Such a pretty post for someone who is feeling so stinky!

    I totally feel your pain. I recently had bronchitis (after my girls had pneumonia back to back). I was laid out for almost a week. It was exhausting. Hang in there!

  22. in love with this post, being sick is the worst feeling. Echinacea always helps my colds, and green goddess smoothies from bolthouse : ) I hope that helps!

  27. Aw it's totally going around. My house is sick too. Everyone except my new little bundle. Funny enough my doctor said as long as I'm nursing, chances of my infant getting sick are pretty slim since he's getting my antibodies agains the bug I have. Amazing how the body works. So you can probably smooch your B without worrying too much if you are nursing =)
