So why do mommas get sick? Is it because we run around non-stop? Put our kids' needs first. Never get enough sleep. Wipe our kids' noses with whatever we have on hand - and literally use our hands sometimes. Never thought I would be that kind of mom. Wasn't with the munchkin. But then once there was too, it was too much effort at times to run and get a tissue or a wipe. So then it became the tank's shirt and sometimes mine.
I think I got over the -wiping a baby's mouth/nose with personal clothing - after the tank puked on me more times than I could ever count. Yep - he puked about 100 x day for the first 3 months of his life. Then it got to 10 x day with thickening his feeds. But after that, I didn't really care about using my clothing as a catch all wipe.
So the tank was sick last week. And now this momma feels like I was run over by a dump truck. Just in time to fly to Hong Kong. Praying that the bug will be short lived and that I don't end up with a horrible cough. I can't imagine what people on the plane would think if I coughed for 20 hours.
So that's all for now. Way too tired. Must clean the floors. Wait - I mean, must put myself first for a short period of time.
