It started on Monday.  It was a little scratch in my throat.  I fought it and fought it until I couldn’t fight it anymore.

By Tuesday night, I was not feeling good anymore.  I was tired and my throat was painful. 

I tried to just work through it all.  I tried to still be the normal mommy, but it hurt to even talk.

By 9 o’clock, I decided to just call it a night.

God bless Hubby for trying his best to keep M from bothering me in our bedroom.  He tried to keep the bedroom door closed, but she knows how to open doors now. 

She probably isn’t used to seeing me sleeping so early.  She probably isn’t used to me trying to keep my distance from her too.  She was all about snuggling up to me.  I did my best to turn my head away from her so I wouldn’t breathe on her.

It was sad.  I had to explain to her that I wasn’t feeling too well and that I didn’t want her to get sick either.  I think she understood.  She would say, “Mimi, sick.”

Thankfully, Hubby was able to keep her busy and I was able to get some rest.  I woke up this morning much more refreshed.  My throat doesn’t hurt as much anymore, but it’s still not 100% better. 

I’m hoping that I can get one more good night’s rest tonight.  It seems to be working.

I just hope M doesn’t catch it.

M started her cold on Monday.

Yesterday, my throat started feeling funny.

These kids and their super germs!

I used to take pride in the fact that I would rarely catch what M had.  There have been several colds that M suffered through that I survived unscathed.. Hubby wasn’t so lucky.

This time, oh this time, I know I’m going to suffer.  It may just be a funny feeling throat now.. but I know that it’s going to end up in a miserable cold later.

Lucky for me, I can take decongestants…

Let’s hope that this cold won’t knock me down too far..

Who takes care of mommy when mommy gets sick?!?!

I hit a hard parenting reality this past week..

The “no sick leave” reality…

I haven’t been feeling too great over the past few days.. headaches.. just overall icky.

Hubby would try to be nice and tell me to curl up onto the recliner and take a nap.. or just rest.. and he’d take care of Little M.

That only works for 2 minutes..

I close my eyes, starting to drift off into nap-town, when I feel little toddler hands on my leg.

“Mimi, mimi!”

She hands me a book.. I read it.. she goes down to play.  I close my eyes..

“Mimi, mimi!”

She hands me a Princess.  I tell her who it is.  She takes it back.  I close my eyes..

This happens several times before I realize that this nap just isn’t gonna happen.

Oh well.. I guess that’s just the way it is now..
