Growing pains

Did any of you experience growing pains when you were little?

Ever since I can remember anything (age 4-5), I remember having growing pains.

They would happen at night and they were so painful that they would make me scream and cry for my mom.

My mom would come into my room and rub my legs and soothe me back to sleep.

I believe Lily has been experiencing growing pains at night.

During the past 2 weeks, she will wake up in the middle of the night screaming and crying for me.

When I go in to check on her, she is shaking her legs and crying “mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy….”

The only thing I can do is to do what my mom did to me, I rub her legs a bit and soothe her back to sleep.

Although Lily is the one going through the physical growing pains right now, I too hurt just from watching how fast she is growing.
