I know. I'm lame. A lame blogger. I haven't been feeling so hot the past few days. My kids took great care of me today. Pulling some tears really helps to gain some sympathy. After lunch I requested that the kids help clear the table. I asked Bradley to clean out Rachel's sippy cup that had been forming cottage cheese in it all morning. Bradley started and then refused because he said it smelled bad which was the exact reason I had put forth the request. But thankfully Emily stepped up to the plate (or actually the sippy cup) and happily cleaned it for me. While she cleaned it I heard her say to Sarah, "Pretend we are all brothers and sisters and we are helping our sick mom." They can pretend all they want as long as it gets the job done.

Later in the evening, after dinner, my husband took the kids out for a walk and before they left Wendy rubbed my arm and said to me, "Mommy, after we leave get yourself a piece of candy to help make you feel better."

I think one of the reasons that my kids were so good to me was because I rewarded them with Lifesavers all day.
