I think I got a faulty contract...

As a mom, you are not supposed to get sick.

At least that's what I think.

The last few days my allergies have taken a turn for the worse, and turned into a full on nasty cold. Now I realize it's just a cold, but still, I feel awful. To make matters worse, Austin has it too, and Ellie came down with it last night. Nights are no fun around here, what with all the coughing and tossing and turning, and yells for ...MOMMY! Yesterday evening, as I was doling out medicine like I was a pharmacist, I just put my head on the kitchen counter and said to Jason...This just sucks. He said, "Yeah. I thought moms weren't supposed to get sick. Isn't that in your contract?"

I wish!

The the thing that frustrates me the most though, is that this morning I wasn't able to go and visit my sweet friend and her two brand new baby boys. OH that makes me mad! I want to hold those sweet tiny babies that we've all been waiting on pins and needles to meet. But I'll wait, because I certainly don't want to get anyone else sick.

I'll just sit here on my couch, and wonder why my contract seems to be invalid.

So sorry Shelley. Moms can never be sick alone. Someone always is sicker and worse off at the same time.

It really does suck sometimes. I think it states that in the contract too.

Hope you are better soon!

I'm feeling blah today too, and you're right, it totally stinks! It has made me slow down, which I needed to do, but I would rather slow down on my own terms. Apparently, God knows me all to well and decided to help me out a little with it! ;)

Hope you're feeling better soon, my friend!

Yeah..we aren't supposed to get sick and when we do...it "sucks" as you put it! :) And, it just does.

Hope you are better and have loved all over those new babies!
