Mommy Sick

They say that a good mommy keeps going, even when sick. Even when it feels like the devil himself has stomped on their head.

I guess I’m not a good mommy.

I’ve caught Brendan’s cold and it feels like my head is going to explode. I blow my nose and a river of snot flies across the room, having torn right through whatever tissue I’m using.

All I want to do is climb back in bed, pull the covers up and say good night to the world until my head reduces back in size to what I consider “normal.”

I’ve ignored my children for two days, relying on the Nanny to tend their immediate needs.

I’ve tried to be a good mommy. I’ve tried acting like I care if they eat or get a bath or do more than play with the coloring electronic they got for Christmas.

I’ve failed … miserably.

Just shoot me now.

    Doctor Pam prescribes homemade chicken soup in large quantities and lots of bedrest.

    You will be up and at em in a few more days.

    • Thank you, Dr. Pam. I did actually eat quite a bit of tomato and chicken soup. I made the chicken soup, used Campbell’s for the tomato.

      Feeling quite a bit better, actually.
