I'm just a big baby...

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.

BOOOOOO!!!! I hate sick.
HOpe you get feeling better and that those aches and pains go away.
Ya, and about those kids growing up.......I was just having my first-born a mere week ago I swear. Even though she's almost 33!
I have no idea how that happened.

I'm so sorry! It's no fun being sick! And no, we will never be old enough to NOT need our Moms and Dads and our kids better never get there either!

You have so much to be proud of with your son. He is a phenomenal kid that any Mama would be proud to claim as her own. Even when sick, you still rock!
