It has been a while since I have done a Mommy Confession. And in light of all of the sicks kids lately...
Today I confess: I secretly like it when my kids are sick.
Now, before you all start screaming/ yelling/leaving my blog or wondering how in the world can I say that, there are a few stipulations.
It cannot be the, you wonder if they will make it through the night type of sickness. And on the other end, it cannot be the just sick enough to make them really crabby and whinny.
I am talking about those sickness were they are truly worn out and want to lay around and cuddle. The ones were you know they will be okay, but they are sick enough that it is completely and totally okay to let them not do a thing.
They want an extra show? Sure honey, since you don't feel good.
They just want toast for lunch? Sure honey, as it is easy on your stomach.
Those are the days we like to set up sick beds in the family room, just sit and cuddle, and relax. And I may or may not enjoy the fact that during this recovery I get to read a few books or spend some extra time on the internet.
Wishing you all good health!
