In the Night...

I used to wonder why little kids always seem to get sick in the middle of the night. Everyone is tired and the lights have to be turned on making little eyes hurt.

Now as the mother of three, I think instead of a curse, the middle of the night illnesses are actually a blessing. Yes, it makes for a long night and day, but both parents are home, so stripping dirty sheets, running the extra loads of laundry, and washing off the child can all be done at the same time. It also means that the other children are sleeping rather than asking what's for lunch, and are we going to eat yet, and this is gross, when will it be over. Or crawling through it--double yuck!

I am very thankful...but can I take a nap now?
