Well, I have certainly gotten the worst mother of the year award.
Or at least I feel like I deserve it.
Jared has been sick since last monday...9 days.
I left for the weekend, which is not bad, but so did my husband. He had a men's retreat to attend Friday-Sunday. We had worked out where Jared would spend the nights...but didn't plan on him still being sick. And didn't plan on thinking he might have mono. Let's just say that the weekend was a bit stressful for me for a while as I tried to take care of Jared long distance.
I might have had a small melt down.
Monday, Steve was back and took him to the doctor and all tests came back clear. It is just a bad virus. I came home Monday night and got Jared one of his favorite dinners....Outback steak, potatoes, broccoli. Though his stomach was still upset, he scarfed down the dinner.
He ate a HUGE dinner tonight too. Come to find out he only ate Ritz crackers while I was gone....he didn't feel up to making himself food.....yep, worst mom.
Now, I know I am not the worst mom, but I sure felt that way....ugh.
I am glad to say Jared is starting to feel better this morning!!!
Now, for the call for help.
My husband feels called to fast over lent. He is giving up all rich foods, desserts, etc. Basically, he will be eating soup and salad. So I am calling on all my foodies out there in bloggy land and asking you to send me your favorite soup recipes. Preferably not too heavy but also something my son will eat....could be tricky!!!
At then end, I am planning on posting about my favorite ones!
Bring on those recipes!!!!
