No Sick Days for Mommy

It’s not that I used to LIKE being sick. But staying at home, sleeping in, reading, and watching copious amounts of TV weren’t exactly BAD, either. Now that I’m a parent, and a SAHM, at that, it’s the WORST.

Because not only am I sick, I still have to take care of my children (who are also sick). My entire body aches, I can’t breathe, and all I want to do is climb in a hole and die. Ok. Maybe not DIE, but disappear and sleep for a LONG while. It’s a good thing I have a high tolerance for my children watching TV. We’ve been working on weaning the kids from TV and iDevices, but that’s all been tossed out the window. Especially since Hapa Papa is on vacation a business trip again. He even had the nerve to tell me he hopes that the kids and I are all better by the time he gets back on Friday. It’s not altruistic on his part. He just doesn’t want to deal with sick people. 😉

So, in light of the fact that I need to go sleep now and not emerge until Glow Worm’s 3am feeding, I am throwing the burden of a post back onto you, my lovely readers. What do you do when you’re sick and have to take care of the kids. Any survival tips?

  1. You already took my award winner suggestion…tv! Movies have SAVED me the two times I have been sick since becoming a SAHM. I think my daughter secretly loved the fact that I was too sick to argue about how many “snacks” were too many. Sick days and mental health days should be a mandatory for SAHMs…but we would be the only one who would enforce them…and I’m just to tired. (=
