Growing up with a mom with CF, Anna doesn't think twice about me doing my treatments throughout the day, or when we go somewhere for the weekend, and I love that. Sure, one day she'll realize that not all moms do a Vest or many nebulizers a day, and she'll have questions and may even be embarrassed, but I am prepared to be open and honest with her. But for right now, I am going to cherish her sweet innocence, and company, while I do my treatments every day (even if she does get in the garbage or throw my medicine vials all over the floor).

Anytime Anna is home or awake when I'm doing my treatments, she always has to come check in with me.

It may be for a quick minute to read a book next to me or what silly stuff she's up to:

It may be to climb on anything and everything in our hodgepodge office:

Or it may be to sit, shake or do medicine with me:

She was saying "ahhh" listening to her voice vibrate

Mommy always has the better medicine ;)

Even when she's playing, I know she's watching me because as soon as I'm done, she'll want to get in my chair and do what mommy's doing.

Just taking a little puff of Dulera

Anna pointed to the chair and said "up". When I sat her in the chair,
she tried to pull the Vest onto herself. After getting it on, she grabbed my
Cayston neb and put it in her mouth so proudly :)
Having a CF mom isn't always going to be easy, but I hope that in her seeing me do my treatments day in and day out it'll teaching her determination, respect for her body, and to see how much I will do to keep myself healthy to be the best mom for her.
