a good pop

So, I woke up yesterday morning unable to move my head or upper body without extreme pain and nausea.  I somehow managed to take care of Millie and Tate, although Tate didn't quite understand why I couldn't pick him up, so he did a lot of fussing about that.  And Chad's home with me today, so that is an ENORMOUS help, of course!  But I just had to share this funny scenario that happened after we got back from the chiropractor last night:

Me: Ugh, I'm still in just as much pain as I was before.  I guess I was just hoping for a really good pop to take care of it all.
Addie: (goes to the fridge and comes back with a 2-liter of pop and a helpful smile) Here you go, Mom.

I, of course, drank the pop and said nothing but "thank you." :)

Oh how I love that sweet girl.

I just love the things kids say and they way they interpret our words! Hope you're feeling better today!

Hah! Cute!
That happened to us last night too. I was telling Hayden how cool it would be when he was potty TRAINED. His eyes lit up...a potty TRAIN?!?! Oh my word :)

First of all - I am SO sorry about your pain. I know how that feels - and it is rough to be a mommy with that going on. I really should be going to the chiro much more regularly.
Secondly - LOVE Addie's response. That is THE best. :)
Hope you feel better very soon!

That is so sweet :o) Too bad a good 'pop' didn't help. Maybe you should drink a little more.
