Holy sickness!!

Life has been going great. Things were falling into place, the boys are just growing and amazing me each and everyday. Then the shit hits...
Eddie has the rotavirus. Its so awful around here. Luke has a touch of it too so that makes for one heck of a time for momma. This is the first break I have had in days, the boys won't even let me out of their sites. And to top it all off I have gotten a smidgen of all the grossness as well. I can't even count how many loads of laundry I have done, how many puke piles I have cleaned up, or how many muddy diapers I have changed. 
I write all this cause these are the things that nobody warns you about when you are tossing around the idea of having a baby. You never think about how the world just comes to a stop when one or both of the kiddos has an illness. And it breaks my heart everyday to hear Eddie ask me to kiss his belly cause it hurts. Its the most awful thing ever and have broken down into tears many a times. I just start to think how parents who have really sick kids handle it all. 
On a positive note, I finally got my mommy car. I just got a Pacifica which I have been eyeing for a while. Its totally a mommy car and I keep assuring myself that its not a van even though it looks like one and drives like one. Its nice and I love it. Call me a mommy if you want to, that's who I am!
So momma will for sure be having a glass of wine tonight, being that the boys are able to keep things down at this moment. A toast is in order for all the mommies out there and all of our hard work that goes unnoticed. Cheers ladies!
