So this got me thinking.... when do stay at home mom's ever get a day off? I continued my life as a stay at home mom and all the duties and chores that come with the title; and took care of someone else's child. Although; I did not have Adison today, as I didn't want to get her sick and just wasn't up for it. So, I got a break from part of my day which did make it easier. I understand that many people would think it's easier to be a stay at home mom, because I get to stay at HOME. Yes, its very nice to be at home and stay in sweats until I have to leave the house! It's very nice to put my laptop on my lap and email with people, while watching Keira and Adison play. But does that mean that I, other stay at home mom's, don't deserve a sick day at home; minus duties and children? I can't help but think that one of the reasons I haven't been able to get better, is because I haven't' slowed down or allowed my body to heal. I will admit, I went to bed at 8:30 the other night. I woke up feeling like I didnt sleep at all though! I also let some housework slide and got to it today finally. But hey, who does housework all day when they're sick?! I"ll also admit, that I missed being a little girl with my mom and dad this week. Don't judge me. There's something about being taken care of and fussed over when you're sick. My parents used to scratch my back and just sit with me, as if they didn't have anywhere else to be. Looking back, I dont remember my parents being sick; always just doing everything to be there for Jason and I.
I know (well, i'm learning still) that being a parent means sacrifice, and maybe this is one of those areas that we sacrifice. What do you do when you're sick (or did when you had little kids)?
Certainly I"m not the only one out there that has thought about this, and likes some sick sympathy!
