I just want to be a kid again
Remember when you were a kid and you got sick? And you stayed in bed all day or your mom set you up on the sofa with everything you needed so you could rest and get better? Yeah that all changes when you become a mom. I have been sick all weekend and not once has anyone said "take the day and go sleep it off." No one made me a sick bed on the sofa with the remote control and free range over the tv and what I wanted to watch. The kids are still fighting, the baby still needs her diaper changed, and lo an behold, they still need to be fed. My friends at work laugh at me when I tell them its better for me to come to work when I don't feel good then it is to stay home. As a mom, your job doesn't stop....it's like those commercials with the parents telling their kids that they are going to have to take a sick day. There are no sick days in this full time job they call mommyhood. But it's okay, I'll get better soon (I hope) and it will be back to normal. It's a good thing that I don't get sick very often...I don't think I could stand it.
