Yesterday was a rough day. My son fell at the park and sprained his ankle. He was a mess, and truthfully so was I. I felt so bad, and as you know, there's nothing worse than seeing your own child in a lot of pain.
Clearly he could not walk so, I had to carry him piggy back style to the car. The only problem was that the car was parked a few blocks away. With Los Angeles being the big city that it is, parking was rough.
As I trudged the trek to our car, I realized one thing. Thank goodness I am in shape and healthy enough to walk with my 40 pound son on my back! It wasn't easy, but I did it.
Health is such an important part of being a parent. If you're not taking care of yourself, how can you take care of others. I'm gonna think about this the next time I want to skip out on the gym.
Moms, what kind of situations have you been in where you thought you would never make it through but did?
