If you HAVE a baby, you won’t BE the baby anymore…
Where are Overboard gifs when you need them?
While I was pregnant, I wondered what it would be like if I got sick while being a mom. I imagined it would be totally sucky, as no matter how bad you feel, you still have to take care of a small being. In short, it doesn’t matter how bad you feel. You are needed. You can’t take off. You have a job to do. And I was like, well doesn’t that just suck?
And now that I am living it? I can say, yes. Yes it does suck. Indeed it sucks a lot.
I’m overreacting of course — this is just a bad cold/throat thing, but I tell ya…what I wouldn’t give to crawl into bed right now and sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep (that’s sleep with a lot of e’s in there. Cuz I need them desperately.). I want to be taken care of. I want to be the baby! Alas, I am not and will never be again, so….oh well.
Also, I feel bad for G, who’s now subjected to a lot of silence broken up by me coughing or blowing my nose. There is no fun today. Maybe some ridiculous faces to make her laugh, but otherwise, not a whole lot going on over here.
Just spoke to T, though, and she’s also a little sick, so she’s going to brave my germs and come over to cheer me up. What a friend. Fun will prevail after all!
