setting the mood

You know that old expression, "When Mama ain't happy, ain't NOBODY happy"? 

I think there's something to it. 

I've not been feeling great.  Either Christmas allergies have kicked in or I've caught Natalie's cold.  My throat hurts, and I'm tired and congested and cranky.

Sarah's been whiny and emotional and somewhat cranky today.

Natalie's been whiny and weepy and irritable as well.  (She's also on Benadryl, which doesn't do anything good for her disposition). 

Coincidence?  Maybe not.  Maybe my bad mood is rubbing off on them, and I need to watch it, sore throat and all. 

Natalie is sleeping and Sarah is reading, so I think I'm going to read and relax and try to soothe my throat with hot beverages.  Hopefully that will put us all in a better mood.

Yeah, there is some truth to it. I know the days I am not feeling well, Connor doesn't seem as happy as he usually is.

I sure hope you all feel better soon! Especially in time for Christmas. ((HUGS))
