UGH

I really didn't know what to title this post, I don't even know if it's a word, but UGH!
Yesterday Alli Jo just wasn't herself. She had got some of her energy back Saturday, but yesterday she just wanted to lay in the bed and would only drink a little bit. It feels like we're on a big YO-YO! Well we had my mom, step-dad, sister, bro in-law, and my nephew over for a little backyard bbq. We figured Alli Jo was sleeping so she'd be able to rest and we wouldn't have to leave the house. Well when things were almost done Alli Jo started to vomit. As most of you know this is not good b/c she is already high risk for dehydrating from getting her tonsils out. Please say a little prayer....I am overwhelmed more than ever right now. Although I wouldn't change a thing in the world (I love my girls), being a mom is a LOT of work. Every day I have to wake up and choose to either go to work or stay at home with my sick baby. When I go to work, I feel horrible for making someone else watch MY sick child. When I stay at home I feel horrible that I'm not at work doing what they're paying me to do. It just feels like a lose, lose situation! So please say a prayer so that Alli Jo gets over this hump and mommy can have somewhat of a "normal" routine again. Thanks & God Bless!

Thought it was interesting that I was struggling with some of my own "guilt" for not being able to be all things to all people and everywhere at the same time...I don't have any words of encouragement-- other than I feel your pain! Hope your little girl is on the mend soon though and I will say a prayer for all of you!
