Mommy Sickness

October 26, 2007

Okay, I admit it. I’m sick. This is a huge admission for me because mothers of 8 are not allowed to be sick, and I make certain to stick to that rule. I will only deem myself sick if blood is pouring from my eyeballs and, while that is not occurring, I think it would feel better than the way I feel now. Whenever I am pregnant, I get this nasty cough-that-uses-every-ounce-of-strength-that-my-body-possesses EVERY TIME I COUGH. It’s exhausting. I know….whine, whine, whine. But since I can’t see you rolling your eyes, I’ll just keep typing and not feel bad about boring you.

So here is a peek into my house when Mommy is sick…….

Various Boy: “Mommy, are you sick today?”

Mommy, thinking how sweet it is to have children that care enough to ask: “Yes, Buddy. I don’t feel good at all.”

Boy: “Does this mean we don’t have to do school?”

    I’ll bet you wish you had an office to go to. And a nice quite cubicle to sit in.

    I don’t have to be sick for this question to be asked in my house. Various considerations cause this question in my house like for instance…I have a cold chill go down my spine, or I have to go to the bathroom at 10:26 instead of 10:35.
