When grown-up kids are sick...

It finally happened. My all-grown-up-moved-out-on-her-own kid is sick with a nasty cold. I was Mommy-to-the-rescue yesterday with some hot chicken soup and hugs for someone who truthfully, was too contagious to hug. I hugged her anyway. I also washed her dishes and took out her trash.

As I bid farewell she said the sweetest thing:
"bMobm-friend, thanks for the cute soup."

You're welcome, Carebear. Get better soon!

Ok .... cute homemade and hand delivered soup is just lovely ... and ..... the blog button - WOW! It looks excellent Deb, I'm going to have to grab one of those. Tell me, how do you write the HTML? I have no clue with the codes :-(

You're such a good mummy!! The soup looks wonderful and I love the little label on it. Hope Carrie feels better soon (and that you don't catch what she has!) xx

Moms kiss them up no matter how sick they are, don't we? And Deb, seriously, you're too much - even your soup is cute!!! lol! You're such a good mom!!

And I'll be the gift, the visit, the chores, and the hug were all greatly appreciated. I must say when I read posts like this how much I hate being a whole country away from my daughter! Hope the soup did the trick and she's feeling better now.

Doesn't matter how old they are, they're always your children and the mum instinct is always there. Hope she feels better soon.

Hope Carrie feels a lot better very soon

Hi there! Just wondering, how do you create a blog button? I would like to do that for mine too =)

Lady Moon said...

Awwwww....how sweet. Can I adopt you as my Mom? I woke up with an ugly cold this morning and could use some soup and mother's love. Your daughter is very lucky to have you.

Mom said...

Sweet mommy! That would sure make me feel better, too! Lucky little Carrie! Hope she's better now and you don't catch it! xo

Karen said...

Hope Carrie is feeling much better and what a lovely mom you are. I am amazed that you find the opportunity to make everything you do a craft project. Lucky Carrie.

Sounds like that just what the doctor ordered. My girl--13--had the flu over Christmas. Poor thing, and she even had a flu shot!

Carrie Rosalind said...

It was very cute soup! Thanks for bringing it to me...it made me smile. :)

Ruth said...

Poor Carrie, do hope she is feeling better. Soup in a cute jar, lovely idea.

Rachel B said...

Oh no poor Carrie! Hope she is feeling better now, how very lucky Carrie is to have such a lovely mummy :)

Aww..... Bless you! My Mum's currently in charge of our laundry, because our washing machine broke just before Christmas and although we ordered a new one there's no sign of a delivery date yet! Hooray for supportive mothers :-)

And I hope Carrie is fully recovered now xx
