Mom Fail?

Mia's not feeling well and she turns 3 on Monday which means her birthday party is this Saturday.  Because of course.

When we put her to bed last night she had a low grade fever and had the chills.

I could go on and on about how lucky we have been with her.  She's rarely been sick outside of a few minor colds and one fever in her 3 years of life.

I had an early morning meeting and called the Hubs around 8:45 to check to see how she is feeling this morning.

She was still in bed.

My daughter?  As soon as someone sets foot on the ground from the bed she is up and ready to take on the day.  She's not one to lie around unless she is not feeling well.

Hubs had already planned to take off Friday to put our kitchen back together now that our tile is finished, so he couldn't stay home with her.  I had no more meetings, so I could have taken the rest of the day off or worked from home.

When asked what her preference was - for Mommy to come home or to go to Dawny's as planned?  She picked Dawny's and my heart broke in a million pieces.

Don't get me wrong, her Dawny is fabulous. She has been a important part of Mia's life from the very beginning and I would never take that away.  They have an amazing relationship and she's family.  We are all very lucky to have her.

But that doesn't make it any easier.

Just when you think there is no one else she'd rather be with, especially on a day where she is not feeling a 100% and you are quickly reminded that today that is not the case.

It stings a little.

There is one teacher in particular at Hunters daycare who he just lights up when he sees, I swear he gets more excited to her each morning than me when i get home from work. Kinda sucks.

Don't worry.. Connor would have picked Becky 1,000 times before me. There are kids! and Snacks! and, well, Becky! I hope she gets better soon!

Also.. go read this post. Maybe it will take the sting away a bit..

Sounds like my daughter. It definitely stings a lot when she prefers her Nana over me or when she practically jumps into the arms of the ladies at daycare!

OH bless! I know the feeling. Easton's never done it when he was sick, but he LOVES Honey (MIL). Sometimes it makes me a little sick too! :( you'll always be her momma though! her ONLY momma!

Do not take it personally! Easier said than done, I know. But sometimes, kids just want a change of scenery. Mia still comes to you at the end of the day and no one can replace Momma!!
