Help Me, Mummy!

2am this morning I was woke to hear the blood curdling screams of my son, My heart raced as I ran to the other end of the house, Screaming and crying, The only words I could make out were, "Help me Mummy, it hurts".

I got to his room and he was laying curled up in pain. I asked him what was wrong and all he could tell me was his legs, please rub my leg mummy.

Growing pains, such a cruel pain. And why? I feel for the poor children that have to deal with it.

After rubbing his leg he eventually drifted off to sleep, but not me. My heart was racing, my poor child in pain and nothing I could do about it, what if it happened again and I was in a deep sleep, what if I didn't hear him and he cried himself to sleep?

  1. Aww poor little guy. :( My step daughter suffers chronically from growing pains in her legs. It's so awful for them.
