Wouldn't it be nice if mommies could take a sick day? I sure could use a sick day.
Production of useful activities, meals, crafts, chores, etc. have not been up to snuff as of late. Unfortunately, they do still have to get done. Even though television is a useful nanny sometimes, I am pretty sure it doesn't change diapers, nurse babies, help toddlers go pee, clean said pee off the bathroom floor, make sure homework is done, make dinner, fold laundry, give baths...you get the point.
As we speak I am laboriously breathing through one nostril, my throat is on fire, and I am sporting two no-where-near-attractive cold sores on my face, AND I am holding a sleeping baby who is having illness issues of his own (yes and typing...I am pretty talented).
This morning I decided push through the yucks to clean under our bed, in our closet, and our desk area (after all cleaning still has to get done...and hey maybe it is my dust laden room making me sick). Fast forward to this afternoon and I am spent and baby is spent AND everything is sitting on my bed in piles and there is still a appalling amount of dust left. I don't think I will be sleeping in my bed tonight.
So I say again, wouldn't it be nice if mommies could have a sick day without the world around them coming to a screaching halt. I guess it says how pretty special and wonderful mommies are, doesn't it.
