tea and sympathy

Sometimes all a mom can do for their child is make sympathetic noises. I can't make the tummy ache go away, but I can bundle her on the couch and rub her tummy and forehead.

I can sit through a Zac Efron movie (yes, people it really does start this early) and suppress a smile as she cries when cute Zac turns back into Chandler from Friends. Actually, I'm right there with her on that one.

I can let her watch Kung Fu Panda for the umpteenth time while I drink tea and smile and hurt inwardly until she is running around and driving me crazy once more.

Only then will I finally relax and embrace what passes for routine around here.
