I've been home all day with a sick child
I'm tired, spent, exhausted
I have nothing left to give
My head aches, my body's numb, my heart is heavy
Some days it's hard being a mom
Even when you have a supportive partner helping to carry the load
Tonight I need sleep, a hug, some time to myself,
A good cry, a sweet dream
And a little bit of inspiration to keep me going

It's not much comfort to know that the big wheel turns and that light comes after dark etc etc ad infinitum/nauseum. So I won't mention it again ;O)
Wish I looked this lovely when I was tired, spent and exhausted!

At least you know all the things to remedy your mood. Hope you got them all in, especially the SLEEP. Those sort of days where all energies are spent giving, are the most exhausting. I hope your child is well now and you have some more time to just BE today. I like this photo though, your eyes look sad, but your face is still so cute.
