Mommy's BIG Head, a New PLAN and International Women's Day 2017

You're right. I have used this picture a number of
times. I look real cute and thoughtful in it

Mommy said she had a BIG HEAD yesterday.
"Mommy!" I said, "Why are you so FULL of yourself today?"
She explained that no, she was not being egotistical but instead she had a MIGRAINE - which is a headache but worse. When she gets them, she said, her head feels as big as a house and she has trouble concentrating.
"Oh no, Mommy," I said. "I am so sorry you have pain. Let me help you feel better."

So I made her some tea (okay, okay, she MADE it but I suggested what kind to make) and made her sit down in a nice spot. Then I suggested she just sit with me for a while and try and relax. So she did.

There, there, Mommy. You'll feel better soon

After a while she said her head was better and only felt as big as the office - which is the smallest room in the house aside from the half-bath. She wanted to get up and do some work but I said "NO NO. BAD GIRL!" I told her to continue relaxing until her head felt normal again - EVEN IF IT TOOK ALL DAY!

So she did. But she couldn't sit idle so she decided to read a little (her eyes were also blurry from the migraine so this took a while) of the book PLAN CEE by her friend Hilary Grossman of #feelingbeachie. It is a wonderful book (I read over Mommy's shoulder) about a woman who is happily married and has a couple of great kids. . . but her OLD boyfriend shows up and she is conflicted by lingering feelings for him and her love for her husband. It is a wonderfully complex but relatable story and Mommy suggests you check it out. Look at the side bar for a link

Mommy read a little while and then decided it was too hard and painful. I suggested a NAP so she cuddled up on the sofa with me and Molly and we all took a NAP. When she got up, Mommy felt a whole lot better.  She was so happy I suggested that nap.

But she was still not quite up to her normal self so she stayed in the chair with me on her lap and she picked up her knitting. She said it sometimes is relaxing to knit and watch a movie - and so we did. This is what Mommy is knitting

After a while it was time to make dinner and Mommy put aside her knitting. "Thank you Noodles," she said. "I feel so much better now. You were a BIG HELP." I bowed my head and told her "GWARSH . . . it were nothing." That made her laugh. I KNOW she feels better when she laughs.
