This Mom Could Use a Sick Day

I started feeling sick on Monday night.

There was tightness in my chest and then a headache that began shortly thereafter.

When I woke up on Tuesday, there was no doubt that I had what was the beginning of a nasty cold.

But, I wasn’t sick enough that I would use a sick day.

Then, when I woke up yesterday, I was much worse and would have absolutely called in sick.

You know, if moms got sick days.

I’m not feeling any better today and Katie woke up sick, too.

I suspect it’s only a matter of time before her brother catches the ick from us.

How do you get through the day when you have small children and no sick days?

Can you either share your tips with me here or come over and watch my angels while I take a three-hour nap?

Because I’m pretty sure it isn’t good for them to be just parked in front of PBS Kids.
