Mama's Love

This is not another post about my favorite sandwich from Mama G's, I know that everyone around me is tired of hearing about my love for that place. This post is about how a 33 year old, grown woman, wife, and mother of one with two on the way, still needs her Mom.

The little bout of stomach sickness that the Munchkin experienced last weekend, was indeed a virus, a bug that struck the rest of this household early Thursday morning, rendering me completely helpless. I woke up at 2:00 am nauseated, thinking that my morning sickness was kicking in again, I ended up on the sofa tossing and turning and eventually puking in a bucket for the next 6 hours. I cannot remember a time when I was so absolutely miserable. I just kept thinking about how this was way worse than any of the morning sickness I had been complaining about.

Hubby stayed home to look after the Munchkin and take her to ballet. My Mom came over around lunch and took over. She took care of me, my child and my house. She was a complete lifesaver!!! Hubby came home from work, sick. Mom stayed over, continued to run my household and I had no worries in the world. What a tremendous help she was. It just goes to show you that you always need your Mommy.

So true. My Mom has been a big help when I've needed her. I'm glad you have yours nearby, and I hope everyone is feeling better now.

I've lived in B'ham for almost 9 years now and it's so hard not having family around for life's little adventures.
P.S. Where the hell is this Mama Goldberg's that you keep talking about???
