Mama Memoirs: Sick Day?!?

I feel like I start ALL my blog posts with, "I'm a little late getting this posted, but..." Well, this post is no different. I pulled a muscle in my neck on Saturday afternoon and I've basically been in a lot of pain and unable to sleep, due to a stiff neck, for the past few days. Because of my injury this post will also be on the short side. 

Which brings me to my topic, where are my sick days?!?

No one ever warns you, before motherhood, that no matter how sick or how hurt you are, you don't get to "call in sick" as a mom. To me, being sick and still being able to function as a mother, has been one of the toughest and more challenging things to face as a mom. My day doesn't change just because I'm sick. I still deal with dirty diapers, feeding kids, interacting with them and making sure my two year old isn't getting into trouble.

Oh, and as my doctor writes the prescription for my neck, she says with a smile, "You will get the best sleep you have had in months with this!" Though she neglected to mention that when I do wake up, it will feel like I was hit by a ton of bricks and that I smashed my head through a wall.

So, off I go to lay on the bed, cuddle with my 6 month old and let my two year old eat cookies and watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory for the 100th time.

  1. I was pondering this thought this week as my husband was dealing with sinus issues and took two days off work. I was thinking "how nice!" Even though he was home sick I took advantage of it to go grocery shopping alone:)

    I hope your neck is feeling better!
