It started yesterday evening, a stabbing into my skull ranging from a very light throb, to a vicious pounding that makes me wince. Of course, I keep thinking I need to take something for it, but never seem to make my way to the bottle of ibuprofen.
Woke up with same headache, trying to keep myself from scowling at everyone as I continue to forget to do anything about it except be miserable and crabby.
This afternoon, I forced the kids to lie down with me so I could try to close my eyes in a dark room. I finally remembered to swallow the medicine and wanted a chance for it to work. The kids took turns propping stuffed animals on me before the youngest finally cuddled next to me, falling asleep immediately.
Sammy was reading in his bed, I thought…..
And then before I knew it he was standing next to me, big smile on his face.
“I brought you a sandwich and a glass of milk for your headache.”
Sure enough, he had dragged a table next to my bed, and had laid out his headache cure for my enjoyment.
What kind of sandwich?
I was thinking it was going to be peanut butter and jelly…..but not from this fancy guy.
A combination of American cheese and sprouts, nestled between slices of dry wheat bread. Sure to banish any headache in moments.
I ate (some of) that sandwich because he is awesome and I love how much he loves me. Bonus points for his original sandwich making skills.
