My son (who will be 11 in about a week) was sick today. Without going into too many details (in case I embarrass him) He has been a little moody lately. I know it's his age and the beginning of you know what so I'm trying to be patient and loving. Anyway I've been feeling a little distance with him and not too sound needy but less needed by him shall I say. Already starting to miss him feeling him growing up and away.
Anyway my perfect moment came today. Unforturnately he was sick today and ended up on a pallet on our bedroom floor.. it's where he wanted to be (near the bathroom). So I was in and out every few minutes as well as daddy. After a while (and here's my perfect moment) he said "Mom can you just stay in here with me, I feel better when you're with me?" Of course it stopped me in my tracks. I got my own pillow and blanket and propped myself up beside him. We spent most of the day like that. I don't need to tell you over 40 people how much harder a floor feels at our age. But, I didn't care, I loved every minute of it (except for him being sick of course). We watched several episodes of one of our favorite shows.. Cash Cab on Discovery. Even though he had his eyes closed he was keeping track of how many right answers we got. We did spend some time on ESPN Sports Center (that's when I pulled out my Jennifer Weiner book) Thank you Terra for mentioning this author on your blog, I like her.
He's feeling a little better tonight. It's nice to know he still needs me sometimes... :)
