This past week has been one of those rare times where I caught myself wondering what life would be like if things worked out differently.
It wasn’t really out of no where — the 5 of us all got struck down with this cold/flu thing and as the mom it seemed I was in charge of making everyone else comfortable despite my 103+F fever. All I really wanted to do was lay in bed in a puddle of my own sick sweat and sleep it off. Instead, I was walking around in my own sick sweat and tending to the needs of everyone else. I was thankful my sick husband was still off on holidays and he and I tag-teamed when we needed to, but I did wonder how much easier nursing myself out of the flu would have been if I didn’t have kids.
I don’t like to think that too much because being a mom is something I have always wanted and it didn’t come easy to me. So in those rare moments of wonder, I also like to think about what I would have missed out on if I wasn’t a mom… some are good and some not so much.
