I hate being sick. I hate it even more now I’m a mum. Did my body not get the message, I’m a mum, I don’t get sick!
If you hadn’t guessed already I’ve been sick this week. Sick enough to warrant a doctor’s trip. Sick enough to be housebound for most of the week. Housebound. With a very energetic nearly 3 year old and temperatures soaring over 40 so we can’t get outside. I’ve been sick and having to attempt to catch the Toddler when he over enthusiastically bounces on the couch so he goes flying off. He knows he’s not allowed it just makes it all the more hilarious.
The type of sick I’ve been? Viral. So no magic drugs. The viral infection affected where? My throat. I’m sure you can see what’s coming next here….. yep. I LOST MY VOICE.
So sick. And voiceless. With a baby that found my croak hilarious and a toddler who delighted that he couldn’t be told off so jumped on the couch more.
Luckily I’m feeling better now. Just about. My voice is back. We are less housebound. The couch is back to bring sat on rather than jumped on 82% of the time.
Mums do not get sick. Body, please take note for next time you try anything like this….
