So we had an interesting weekend.
We were all set to host a backyard BBQ at our house with a few of our friends and their kids on Saturday. I was looking forward to it all week – we had prepared the ribs and the chicken wings, and I even bought gifts for the kids! But that morning when I woke up, I had a massive fever and a sore throat that went up into my ears. I was sick. For the first time since becoming a mom, I was really sick.
Do you remember what it’s like being sick without a kid? It’s all soup, and snuggles, and bed, and movies. Do you know what it’s like being sick with a kid? It’s trying to do everything you do daily, but hurting through it. While wearing a medical face mask because you don’t want to accidentally get your kid sick too. There are no snuggles, there are no movies – there is only the thought of “I need to get over this by tomorrow, so I can take care of my child.”
I really have to thank my husband here… he really stepped up this weekend and took care of the baby, the house, and me. For most of Saturday, I just lay comatose in bed, alternating between hot and cold. He knew what to do and when to do it – he handled Olive like a pro. I am so proud, and so thankful for this awesome dude.
How was your weekend? I hope it was less phlegmy than mine!
