On Wednesday morning I woke up with the flu. I tried to call in sick, but the boss (Peanut) had no intentions of letting me have the day completely off. It took him an hour or so of pulling my hands and begging until he realized there was no way I was getting off the couch. Then he became the most helpful baby in the whole world, bringing me water, helping me take my temperature, bringing me stacks of books so we could lay on the couch and read together, and even hefting the full gallon of milk over to the couch to fill up his sippy cup so I didn’t have to get up.
He didn’t even complain about having to eat dried mangos and toast with jam for dinner because that was the only food I could tolerate looking at.
I’m finally feeling better, but it took several hot baths, a few back rubs from Philip, lots of sips of water, and lots of laying on the couch. Mom’s should be exempt from sickness, period.
I’m linking up with Sarah from Frills for Thrills today, copying the gorgeous style of Katie from Running on Happiness. Her outfit is colorful and fun — I think mine feels a little Ronald McDonald. What do you think?
