An all time low

I hit an all time low with this pregnancy today:

My 5-year-old daughter was comforting me by rubbing my back while I threw up in the toilet. Somehow I have managed to not get sick in front of her until today. She just kept saying, "It's ok Mommy." Then at dinner time she told her Daddy, "I want this baby to be born now because I am tired of Mommy being sick."

Bless her heart. I want my daughter to play dress up and dolls and do other "normal" things for a 5-year-old...not watch her Mommy get sick and act like the caretaker.

I was excited to get below 90 days in this pregnancy, but today 82 days seems like a lifetime. I feel like I can't take another day. But just like my sweet daughter said tonight, "Maybe if you get a good night sleep you will feel better tomorrow." That's all I can hope for.

I know you were feeling rotten, and you want your sweet daughter to just play dress up, but - to an outsider (who isn't hormonal at the moment, LOL) - this is the most precious scene!
Is Emma always this compassionate?

I am fully convinced that God hugs me, kisses me, and tells me He loves me through the arms and mouth of my eight-year-old. Perhaps He was making Emma His vessle of love to you!
