Moments Like These

Sometimes in life there are moments that you wish you could change, for me one of those moments was at 7.15pm last night. I had just put Iyla to bed and got into the bath, she was moaning a bit more than normal but I carried on washing my hair. Then her cry changed to one that I couldn’t ignore, I thought she had dropped her muslin so I rinsed off my hair as quickly as I could and rushed into her.

When I went into her room I saw that she had been sick everywhere. I took her out hoping that it was just a one-off only to be puked on again and again, until the early hours of the morning.

We have had a lot of puking moments over the last 24 hours and I didn’t enjoy them for obvious reasons, not only is sick pretty horrible but there is nothing worse than seeing your child ill. You just want them to be well again.

But when I got back from the supermarket earlier, I walked into the living room and saw this…..

This only ever happens when Iyla is ill, normally she would be hitting Dad2BabyInsomniac over the head with a pink teapot for falling asleep!

I love the way she is clutching onto his arm, they love each other so much and I can’t wait for her to see this when she is all grown-up.

So sometimes those crappy moments in life are worth it because without them, you wouldn’t get moments like these.

    Bless them – what a gorgeous photo. You are so right though. I have this saying that “above every cloud the sun shines” that I try to remind myself of when I’m having a shit day!
    I hope Iyla’s feeling better now. x

    Throw up is horrible. I was always extremely sensitive when it came to hearing it, seeing it and smelling it. If any of the mentioned happened near me, I would gag & get sick myself…until I became a mom. Now- I can handle it- basically just like anything else thrown my way!
    I hope your little lady is feeling better.
