I finally caught what my boys seem to have. Only it seems like I am more affected by it then they are. Why is that? Maybe kids are just more resilient. Or maybe, well, you know what they say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. I feel like my throat is getting ripped out of my neck every time I cough and my head feels like its going to explode every time I move.
It hit me like a ton of bricks this morning. I don't have time to be sick!! I don't even have time to sleep so, what makes anyone think I have time to be sick?
After a rough coughing spasm, Savannah eyed me warily and asked, "Mom, are you sick?"
Of course I told her I was. She then screwed her face up one one side and cocked her head. "But moms can't get sick." she declared.
Oh if only it were true! When dads get sick, they get to stay home from work and spend the day in bed. How come I can't take the day off from work and stay in bed? I think that should be in the mommy contract, that we get some sick days off! Let's all file a petition, or go on strike! Maybe even start a union!
Fine, I guess you're right.
But its still a dirty rotten trick I tell ya! Just down right mean.
