Out Sick



Wouldn't it be nice if mommies could take a sick day? I sure could use a sick day.

Production of useful activities, meals, crafts, chores, etc. have not been up to snuff as of late. Unfortunately, they do still have to get done. Even though television is a useful nanny sometimes, I am pretty sure it doesn't change diapers, nurse babies, help toddlers go pee, clean said pee off the bathroom floor, make sure homework is done, make dinner, fold laundry, give baths...you get the point.

As we speak I am laboriously breathing through one nostril, my throat is on fire, and I am sporting two no-where-near-attractive cold sores on my face, AND I am holding a sleeping baby who is having illness issues of his own (yes and typing...I am pretty talented).

This morning I decided push through the yucks to clean under our bed, in our closet, and our desk area (after all cleaning still has to get done...and hey maybe it is my dust laden room making me sick). Fast forward to this afternoon and I am spent and baby is spent AND everything is sitting on my bed in piles and there is still a appalling amount of dust left. I don't think I will be sleeping in my bed tonight.

So I say again, wouldn't it be nice if mommies could have a sick day without the world around them coming to a screaching halt. I guess it says how pretty special and wonderful mommies are, doesn't it.

You sound like you need a day off! I hope you start feeling better and that you get a little extra time to REST and sleep. Wouldn't that be wonderful! Thinking about you. Let me know if you need anything. If I were there I would take the boys off your hands...feel free to send them to me for a couple of days if you need :)

Amen Sista. Something is very trying when youre sick an have 3 kids. it was maintainable with 2 but 3 is just completely out of control isnt it. You'll do just fine. some things Ive learned along the way is to go to bed early like right after the boys, let the house go who cares lay around play board games with kids, watch movies, whatever it is you barley move in those days. I swear it lessens the sickness time and makes you feel batter faster. plus with the house falling apart and the kids off the wall its a good time to give the boys a lesson on caring for mama. let them know you cant do it all the time and need help. they need to see you in need sometimes so they can learn to be compassionate. so leave those dishes and clothes for the hubby and kids believe you me is brings great joy to their souls to help out their mama. we do have sick days its just not in the traditional way, but use them often so others can help you back.love ya
