February 16 - I Love:: Being the Mommie in "Mommie, I'm sick..."

My youngest is not feeling so well.
She's been off-and-on sick since Saturday.
She's the one with the red cheeks and the yuckies.
So, we're snuggling and tending to icky tummies and runny noses and all that being sick brings.
This, of course, includes sleeping the big bed with Mommie and Dad. And entitles you to special tea and ice water in Mom's favorite coffee-to-go cup.

But there's no To Go.
Just "stay."

And cozy. And a little of "that feels better when you rub my head."

I do love that name, Mommie.
