When kids are sick

There are few things that make you feel more helpless than having sick kids. It's worst when they are infants, when they can't tell you what's wrong. Plus they are so small and vulnerable.

As they get bigger, they can tell you what hurts and that they don't feel good. But I, at least, still feel a powerless in the face of a puking 3 year old. As spasms wrack his little body, he sobs, wanting Mommy to make it better. And there's not much I can do but help him aim into the toilet.

My sick baby, on his 2nd nap and 2nd set of pajamas.
Whether they have a fever or a bad cold and congestion or a stomach ailment, there isn't much I can do except cuddle them. And love them.
