Where’s My Gold Star: When Mama Is Sick

by Erin L. on January 22, 2013

dressed and fed

We all know that mamas don’t get sick days.  We pop pain killers or cold medicine and drudge through the day in a foggy haze.  There’s no rest for the weary.

But what happens when both parents are sick?

Saturday morning my husband and I both woke up and thought “uh oh.”  Nothing major, just that feeling that something was looming.  We trudged through the day and were in bed at 8:30 p.m.

Sunday was pretty heinous.  We were tired and cranky, which made for a super swell time.  Luckily, my MIL came over for a little bit and took the kids to play outside. Hallelujah!

Monday wasn’t much better. Hubby went to work for a few hours and I entertained the kids to the best that I could. It wasn’t great.

There were no crafts. The kids watched more TV that normal; they played games on our phones more than I would prefer.  But they were dressed.  They were fed.
