Being a Mum can be hard work, even harder when your not feeling 100%. Looking after my two littlies these past couple weeks has been rough, if it wasn't for the help of my Hubby I don't know how I would have coped.
Some mornings I have struggled to get out of bed as I've spent half the night awake from coughing.
"Cherub" has been waking at odd hours for bottles or "Popette's" coughing has been waking her up or "Popette" has woken up.
I haven't been able to get up to them, so poor Hubby, who has been sleeping in the lounge room these past couple weeks, has been doing it all by himself.
And now he is starting to get the dreaded lurgy :(
Over the past couple of weeks, he's worked from home a couple times or started late so he can help me out in the morning so I can rest a bit longer. He's dropped "Popette" off to daycare or picked her up, so I didn't have to leave the warmth of the house, as well as kept the logfire going in the morning so I woke to a warm house.
I've been very lucky that his work hours are flexible and he is able to work from home. I don't think I would be feeling as well as I am now or had the chance to get the rest I needed if he wasn't there to support me.
I guess there are times when I don't realise how lucky I am or how much he actually does for me or the girls. This week I am grateful for his support, not just for the last couple weeks but for all that he does for us.
What are you grateful for this week?
