Monday Mode ☆ Purple Tutu

June 3, 2012

I found these photos of my middle child taken in April, 2011 in my iPhoto library and realized that I never used them for my Monday Mode last year. It’s been a year since these photos above were taken and a lot has happened since then. She was the youngest child of two back in April, 2011. Now she has a little brother.

She’s still going through the transition after her brother was born. I hear it’s hard to be a middle child. I’m the oldest, so I can only imagine what it feels like to be a middle child and I am definitely learning about it as I raise her. I am constantly making a conscious effort to give her enough attention.

When I look at the picture of my two older children from the past years, they make me nostalgic already. How can they look so different in a year? I am aging, too! Yikes.

Tonight (as I write this) my middle one is sick in bed. She threw up earlier and started to run a fever. She barffed at a party. I felt bad for her as well as for the party invitees. You can imagine what the moms and dads were thinking when they saw a sick child at a party. I felt bad for her because I didn’t take it seriously when she told me that she had a stomach ache.

It worries me when I feel my daughter’s feverish body. I hope she gets better by morning. When my child gets sick, it makes me realize how important the well-being of my children is to me.

    What a cutie pie!
    This one’s got spunk and pizzaz and man, can she strike a pose!
    Don’t feel badly about brushing off her stomach ache. Parent’s can’t know everything. I am a nurse and I once took my 6 year old to the circus when I thought she just had a cold…it turned out to be pneumonia!
    Luckily stomach bugs go through little one’s quickly and I’m sure she’ll be better fast.

      She’s doing great today! I think something was going around. I heard that my friends’ kids who were at a birthday party last week also got sick. At least she’s getting stronger by being exposed to many viruses at this age!

    Glad to hear she’s OK now.
    It’s no fun being sick – from recent experience with the flu – & I think it’s harder for kids.

      Kids do grow up fast, don’t they? I see my kids everyday, so I don’t notice, but when I look at pictures, I get surprised, too!
