Being Sick and Being Mom

Some of the hardest days as a mom are when you are sick. You want to be a kid again and snuggle up on the couch all day. I am always taken back to when I was a kid, and had my mom waiting on me hand and foot all day long when I was sick. She would make jello and chicken noodle soup, and buy 7up for us to drink. We would watch movies and sleep as much as we wanted. I miss my mommy when I'm sick.
So what happens when Mommy gets sick? Well, we still have responsibilities, don't we? Our husbands still go to work, we have to watch our kids and get their meals and put them to bed. And we just have to push through being sick. But it's not easy, I'm not gonna lie. You can't sleep in, or sleep all day, or just lay around the entire day. And you still are waiting on your kids hand and food while you're sick.
No sick days for mommy. We can be sick, but we can't call in sick.

It's sickie season. I'm ready to be feeling better so my job as mommy is easier.

What do you do when you are really sick and your kids aren't? Ideas? Tips?


  1. No fun at all! Feel better soon!

  2. I lay or sit on the couch & play simon says. I can tell them to spin in a circle or run all over the house & back to me...really gets their energy out & mine is reserved for more important matters like cooking dinner.
