A Conversation with Keagan

I had a great conversation with Keagan earlier this week, but first I need to give a little background. I have had a really bad cold/flu this week. I woke up on Monday morning with just a scratchy voice which I didn't think much of, but by the time Andrew went to work at 12:30 that afternoon, I was feeling really sick. When Andrew was getting ready to leave I was sitting on the couch wrapped in a blanket feeling really cold and with my body aching. Just after Andrew left Keagan came over and asked me if he could sit on my lap under the blanket I told him not right now because I didn't feel good, here is how the rest of the conversation went:

Keagan: What does that mean?
Me: It means that my body hurts.
Keagan: Where?
Me: All over, my whole body.
Keagan: Mommy need to go poo poo?
Me: No, I don't need to go poo poo.
Keagan: Mommy need go tinkle?
Me: No, I don't need to go tinkle?
Keagan: Mommy need tickles?
Me: No, I don't need tickles. Do you need tickles?
Keagan: No...(keagan thinks for a moment)...Mommy need candy?

It brought a huge smile to my face and I immediately wrote it down an a peice of paper so that I could remember it and put in on our blog when I had the chance.

I am feeling a little better today which is a huge blessing. Andrew has been working super long hours this week (Monday from 12:30 -10:30pm, Tuesday from 5 am to 9 pm, Wednesday from 5 am to 7 pm, then today, Thursday, he left at 5 am again) so its been challenge taking care of the boys while being really sick. It sure does make me appreciate my good health.

I know exactly how you feel. There's nothing like being sick to make you realize what a blessing it is to be healthy all the time. I hope you get feeling better soon!
