So how was your weekend?

in Thoughts

I wish I could tell you we went to Disneyland. Or camping/swimming/ice fishing.  But noooooooooo, we had to stay home. All weekend long. And I wish I could blame the kids. “no, the kids are sick again, I’m so sorry but we won’t be able to make it”, but the truth is that they are the epitome of health. The adults are the problem this time.
Here,  I’ll break it down for you: Papa goes to work + papa socializes too much with the hospital staff = Papa contracts germs. Papa then comes home + Papa kisses Mama =  Mama contract’s papa’s germs. Papa and Mama get sick. And they lived smuttily ever after.

I don’t know about you but when I am sick, my usual need for TLC quadruples. Is lying motionless on the sofa while being served head to toe really too much to ask? (the pink cover please honey, no, this one is too small..no honey, my tea is not warm enough, can you please microwave it for me again? and where are my cookies?). The obvious answer (just in case you were wondering), is Yes. You just can’t tell a newborn and a toddler to take care of themselves because mommy and daddy are sick (anyway, they are too short to reach the microwave). So we pulled it together and played house, hoping the 2-year-old won’t play too much with the growing piles of kleenex. Sometimes I think that we will just have to burn this house instead of disinfecting it. Much easier.

I’m so sorry you’ve been sick, but hilarious post! I totally understand – when I’m sick, there’s nothing more that I want then for someone to come over and play Mom to my child AND take care of me. It may very well be the hardest time to be a Mom – when you’re a sickly one. Hope you feel great soon!!

Thanks Rachel!

I’m already doing much better..
In these times I really wish I had my mom around, or maybe to be british royalty, with an apron wearing nanny under my roof to take care of the kids and serve me tea and scones ;-)…mmm scones..(too bad all I have in my fridge is chicken)

Take care and keep up the good work.. I love your blog
