The Mommy Cold

The Sad Truth

The Sad Truth

“My head feels as big as my butt is.” What an awful sentence. Unfortunately it pretty much perfectly describes my current state.  My butt is bigger than I’d like it to be two kids later (oh let’s face it, it was bigger than I would have liked even before the kids). And now my head feels THAT big. It’s not a good thing. (Piece of advice – only I am allowed to call my butt big).  I am fighting another head cold and nasty cough. Didn’t I JUST get over this like a month ago? OK. Maybe it was two months ago, but seriously – this is too soon. It’s the vicious cycle that I’ve come to expect as a mom of young children. One kid gets a cold. You manage to take care of them without catching it. They just start to get over it as the next kid is starting it. You are still managing to fight it off – though who knows how as your toddler constantly coughs right in your face and wipes his nose on your shirt about 867 times per day. Not to mention that you don’t sleep because both kids are up a combined total of at least 4-5 time a night. BUT nonetheless – you are somehow fighting it. Then they finally seem to be getting over it and feeling better and BOOM. It hits you. You feel that tickle in your through and that bit of congestion in your nose and you know. It’s over. No point trying to deny it. You’re going to get the dreaded head cold. Your kids are feeling just better enough to be insanely grumpy and you feel like your head might explode any second. Actually that would be nice, might relieve some pressure. THIS is the MOMMY COLD. It sucks. It’s nasty. You know why? Because you have no choice but to keep going. Little lives depend on you. This is the cycle. I’ll get through it, I always do. In a few months it will start all over again. No rest for the weary. Time to hit the hay and pray my littlest guy miraculously only wakes up once or twice tonight instead of four times. Here I go – wish me luck!

-One sick and tired mommy.

    I so remember those days!! ( my 3 are all grown up now and both daughters have 2 kids each….son is still single 🙂 It’s totally terribly tough to be sick as a mom-o-2 wee ones……non-existent. Hang in there ( hopefully not over a porcelain throne!! ) ” this too shall pass “…as my, now in Glory, mom used to say often. This grandma back in Commanda is praying for you…rest when you can and may you soon feel God’s healing touch! Blessings….. Barb-in-the bush 😉

Your life is a time to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all aspects of you. Tinker with shit, pack light && travel far. Explore, love a little, smile a lot, && never, ever touch the ground. It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself & to make your happiness a priority. It's necessary!
