Moms don’t get the PLEASURE of being sick!

This sentence, said by my sister is an accurate one.  

It’s hilarious at first thought.  Who would ever think being sick is a pleasure!?

But then if you have infants/toddlers, you’ll know what I mean.  By no means do i suggest that being sick is desirable over parenting.
What I do mean, however, is that NORMALLY when we are ill, we get to rest and be cozy in bed or on the couch all day and drink sprite through a straw, or steaming Raspberry tea. We lounge all day, with laptop or iPad or iPhone within our grasp to surf and watch movies all day.

Insert energetic toddler and newly mastered 8-month-old Crawler and the relaxing “PLEASURE” of a sicky day goes POOF.

So now, we just have sick mom who, if she’s lucky, gets to lay down for 1/2 hour with a heating pad while the baby’s naps overlap.

That’s me. Today.
Not complaining.  Just stating my new experience of being sick with babies present. 
Definitely a challenge and a test of patience.
This is day two of feeling like I’ve been hit by a bus.  My momma helped me a lot yesterday, but so did Ibuprofen.  Today, Ibuprofen no bueno; my momma not here to help. 
Ima guessin that’s where most peeps will tell me this will make me a stronger person.
I’d have to say I agree.
