well 4 mad dashes to his bedroom later. 3 out of the four times I THOUGHT I heard him and 1 time he really was throwing up... Another change of clothes and both go back to bed. And after nursing 'Honeysuckle' and trying desperately to forget the fact that it was 5:30 am. Elvin's alarm starts going, and going, and going! this is when I started wondering if I had somehow missed the small print in my mothering contract??
No one told me that my heart would be bursting with love and compassion for a brave little boy as I clean up puke in the middle of the night. Or that I would enjoy waking up in the wee morning hours to nurse a toddler. No one told me that I would only put my head under the pillow instead of punching my husband when the alarm goes, and goes, and goes. Or that I would stumble through my day with sleep on my mind as I do laundry, wipe noses (and bottoms) and cook meals. And That I would enjoy it all!! I am SURE it was somewhere in the small print of my mothering contract but some one failed to point it out to me. So I will continue to be surprised over this parenting job that God has placed me in!
