I knew exactly when it happened. But I wouldn't change it. I was dropping something off for my kid at her dads house. MsDebate has been very sick and we decided it would be best to separate the two girls. NO ONE----and I mean NO ONE wants DramaGirl to get sick (trust me on that).
MsDebate ran out to the car, long pajamas slippers and a hoodie looking like my kid, to talk with me. She jumped in the front seat to be warm and we hugged. It had only been a day or two but I hate not having my kids around. You really have to learn that acceptance after a divorce.
As she hugged me I saw the little funk bugs leaving her body and jumping to mine. I was happy they were jumping her ship and finding a new home, just not my vessel. They sat idle for a day strengthening in my fresh blood.
With a vengeance, they came out yesterday.
As they scream through my ears and empty the contents of my brain through my nose I battle them (I'm so hot today!! Really,, I can say that today without laughing because I have a fever, sigh). And as I hit the I want MY MOMMY wall, I have to be the MOM. Hoover needs food and a butt scrub as he had a "is this REALLY happening??" poop experience. And DramaGirl needs an avenue to share her drama.
But I do love my job!! Healthy kids who smile and do stupid things amaze me.
And I am thankful
.........but,,, if you come hug me today,, I just might let the funk bugs loose on you!!
.........so call ahead and wear protection!!
