Being a mom is not All about Cute pictures!

Ok...so Stomach Flu and Morning Sickness dont mix. Especially when both of your kids are sick too! Yesterday, I got a taste of how bad things can get when you are not at your best. I was miserable, the kids were excited and hyper but by their bathroom breaks I could tell their bodies were miserable...I felt so helpless. I couldnt eat, I was counting the minutes until Rob got home. I only broke down into tears 5 times or so, but they may have been the first 5 times that Robbie has seen...he kept saying "dont worry mom, Ill make you better, dont cry...you will make Elle cry." I seriously could not toughen up.
When rob walked through the door, I broke down completely. Told him a play by play of the entire day and then told him the only thing I could possibly eat was chicken noodle soup. So...that was it. He took the kids to the store while I took a bath, when he got home I ate a little bowl of soup and then crashed for the night. I woke up to the realization that I had a lot of cleaning to do this morning. To my surprise, Rob had bathed and fed both the kids, put them to bed, cleaned the whole kitchen and folded 6 loads of laundry. So even though Im still a little wheezy...I am so much better today starting with my clean house!

Chels- those days are the worst! I hope you guys are feeling better soon!

Oh Chels, I am so sorry! If it is any consolation... having 3 is easier than being preggo with 2. Hang in there, this will pass you by soon enough.

We are in the same boat, when we get sick, there is no one to call to come grab the kids. Why don't Mom's get sick days too? I think the whopping 1-2 times a year a Mom gets sick, we should be able to crash in our beds and really be sick. I totally hear you on the counting minutes thing ;)

Feel better soon. Nap when the kids nap, housework isn't going anywhere!

I am SO sorry! I wish I would have been there to take Robbie and Elle. I can't even imagine how crappy that day was for you. I am such a baby when I am sick- I think I would have broken down more than you. And taking care of 2 sick kids on top of it??? I've said it before and I'll say it again- you are a trooper! Hey- do me a favor and send me your new address either via email or post it on my blog. I really hope you're all better. Love ya!
