Poor Rachel

Sometimes (like a couple of months ago with Bailey) little girls are so tired and exhausted that they fall asleep with their heads on the kitchen table during dinner.  Other times big girls are so tired and exhausted from being on day 5 of the worst flu ever, with fever, chills, body aches, and  nasty head congestion, that they fall asleep with their head on the dryer door while trying to do the laundry.  (Thanks Rachel for being such a trooper.  I hope you feel better soon.)
 

When I found her like this she quietly whispered, "it's so warm".

Poor Rachel! That is so funny though. I can relate. Being sick on top of being a mom is more than exhausting!

Ruth said...

You poor thing! I hope you feel better soon! At least I know that we didn't give it to you! :)

Poor Rachel is right! I hate being sick and it is so worse when you have to take care of kids. I feel for her!!! I hope she gets better soon.

Oh dear! I wish I could come and help you out. You are such a hard-working woman/wife/mommy. Get well soon!!

Aw! that is classic...so glad you got a picture! I'm so sorry she's so sick, though! For a while in my single days, I would stick my bedding in the dryer before going to bed...that was when I lived in Utah though. Here, I don't need to do that so much...she must be really sick. Hope she's better soon.

Sorry, Rach, but that's hilarious! I can totally picture the whole scene and it makes me smile because it's classic Rachel. I miss you!:)

Hope you're feeling better Rach...don't you just love the laundry room it smells so nice and it's toastey. We need to get together once I'm over my cold (almost there) and you guys are over your flu bug. We'll for sure see you guys at the next family fast Sunday dinner.

I'm so sorry you've been so sick, Rachel. What a bummer. Love the picture though.

As hard as I'm sure living through the flu was with four children, this picture is worth it all, or at least it will be for posterity!
