I think the part I like least about being a mom is the feeling of being out of control. Especially when they are sick. My oldest isn't feeling well - a few days with a fever, and out of school all week.
They make these cool thermometers now. You can stick it on their forehead for up to 48 hours and it monitors it.
Then we went from upstairs to the couch for some healthy lunch....Lucky Charms!
