DAY 1273... Adjusting my Attitude

It seems as though the instant we walk out of the house, one of my babies get sick, which means within days hours they are both sick, which means we don't leave the house for days. We stay in our jammies all day long. We do our best to stay hydrated and eat healthy. And we cuddle a lot and take tons of naps.

I HATE being sick and even worse, I hate when my children are sick. I just feel so helpless and useless when they are sick and it breaks my heart. Just one of the many reasons...


So I decided that instead of being miserable and sad and depressed all day, that I was going to take my camera everywhere with me and find the moments that we all experience every day, even when it's the worst of days, that make us smile. Moments that we want to remember. Moments that make our day. As they say in the movie Juno, I was out to find "a blessing from Jesus in this garbage dump of a situation."

This is how we spend our sick days...

Documenting my children, during what seems like the worst of days, really makes me realize that even sick days have a silver lining. Life is beautiful even on the bleakest of days.


  1. I love this post and especially your attitude. You had a fabulous idea for making the most out of a sick day. The photos are great. I also lik the quote from "Juno"...will have to find that movie as I've never heard if I before now. I am glad I found your blog today.-Jessie (who is trying to learn google plus on and communities....so bear with me)

  2. I really love those photos of you and your children. You are all adorable, even in sick days. Hahaha! Anyway, I salute you for being such a caring mother. Keep up the positive aura, Jennifer! Thanks for sharing that! I hope that everyone is feeling better now. All the best!
