Miss Cranky Pants has left the building - for the moment. I feel to cruddy to be cranky. Woke up with a sore throat yesterday which has only gotten worse today. I went to the Doc today for a follow-up appointment for my heel. Everything looks good. But I had him check an ingrown toenail which led to the removal of said ingrown toenail. The numbness wore off about a hour ago, now it just hurts.
I am kind of a baby when I don't feel well. Between the sore toe and sore throat, I am really not feeling well. Times like this I miss being a little kid. I miss having Mommy take care of the hurts. Told ya...a big baby.
I wonder if we ever get over wanting Mommy (or Daddy) to help heal our hurts. I hope not. I don't like to think there will come a day when my son doesn't need me or want my help. Already I struggle with him becoming a man. It baffles me that he will be 18 in a mere 8 months. It seems like yesterday that he was just 18 months old.
Tonight he is at the movie. None of his friends could go with him so he went by himself. I like that he doesn't depend on other people and will go do what he wants to do by himself. I offered to suck it up and go with him. He would rather go alone than be seen at the movie theater on a Friday night with his Mom. I can't say that I blame him. It just makes my heart a little sore.
I'm not sure where I was going with this post but I better stop before I get too mired in the depths of self pity.
I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend. I am going to curl up on the couch and hope the rest will make my aches go away.
