Sick Sick Sick


Ok, this is going to be short and sweet. Well, that is my intention anyway as I start putting the letters to paper...

Why can the Mommy's of the world never ever be sick?????
It's not fair....
Boo Hoo.

Ok.. let me explain my juvenile rant. Don't judge me yet.

My gorgeous, awesome, very smart husband was sick this weekend.
And he was absolutely genuinely 100% sick.
Sick, Sick, Sick

He had a terrible little stomach bug that had him close to the house and in bed all weekend long. And I felt sorry for him. For a bit.
But it's hard. It's oh so hard...

And, to be fair, it's not totally his fault that I started to feel a little frustrated. It's just the life of a mommy...
And I can deal. But to help me deal.. I am going to complain here in my open forum for other sick mom's around the world to hear...

When my husband is sick, he is bed-bound. The Patient. No one better bother him. He won't touch the kids for fear of passing on whatever he has and wants to be taken care of. :)
Just like me.. or any other human being on the planet.

So what is the big deal?

I just have to point out that in the 4 years of being a Mommy and 5 years of being Thomas's wife and even after 2 C-sections, wisdom teeth removal, an anal fissure surgery (ouch - yes it was the most awful experience ever.... and yes it was due to baby) and getting my gall bladder out - I have NEVER EVER been allowed to lay in bed all day.
EVER...
ever.
hmph.

And not necessary because my husband wont "let" me but because the kids radiate towards me and end up coming upstairs, jumping all over the bed or someone needs to watch the kiddos while my awesome chef of a husband cooks dinner or I hear the cries and can't help but run over to see what I can do.

Or there is a vacation planned and no one is about to reschedule cause I just had an organ removed...
Or everyone is bored - no mind I have been cut open and had a bowling ball of a baby removed from my uterus and haven't slept longer than 3 hours in 6 weeks....

Get the point? :)

So, after my very insignificant ear/sinus infection diagnosis yesterday, I definitely didn't get a day alone to lay in bed. And I wouldn't expect it.
But it does make me a little bitter...

I HEAR YOU, GIRL! I'm all over this one! I totally understand. He gets sick, he stays home from work, we tiptoe to keep him comfortable. A mom is sick, well, there is no work to call-in to, no break from the 24/7 that we have all the time. And, it is a big part due to the fact that we love our kids so much, that we can't stand to lie there and hear them cry in the other room...or to hear our hubbys struggle with tasks we do everyday - while doing OTHER THINGS AT THE SAME TIME! Oh, man, I could go on...

Love you, girl! I say next time, call in sick, don't tell hubby, and watch movies all day. You deserve it!

I hope he feels better soon so he help you out again, haha! I guess for us moms, the days of channel surfing and hours of sleeping while sick no longer exist. It kinda sucks. No, it sucks big time!
