No one likes being sick.
When your kids are sick, you want to take it away from them.
You baby them
When a man is sick.
They typically act like a baby also.
They can’t work, they just want to lay in their bed. eat soup and take meds.
They say sleep is the best remedy when you’re sick. My husband and my kids will sleep and lay in their beds until they feel better.
And that is fine.
However, when a mom is sick..
Things are completely different.
When a mom is sick…they have to get up and take the kids to school. Make sure lunches are packed. Make dinner. Clean the house. Run any errands. Pick the kids up. Etc…
When I am sick. I want to lay down. I want to sleep. I just want to feel better.
But I have to push thru and keep doing what I need to do. Mom flu. It is like the normal flu, but no one cares.
