Getting Sick When You’re a Mom

It has been weeks since I’ve been able to sit down and write!  Why?  Well the entire family has traded off being sick for about 3 weeks now.  Everyone is finally feeling better so it’s nice to sit down for a minute.

My little man was the first to get sick, then my husband, and finally, me of course.  It’s been an exhausting few weeks because my husband worked 7 straight days at one point and finished off that week by going out of town for training.  This all happened as I was starting to get sick.

When I was younger I always assumed my mom was never sick.  I never saw her lay down on the couch for a few days because she wasn’t feeling well.  She never spent time resting in bed, getting over a bad cold or flu.  In my eyes, she was invincible.  Somehow staying healthy when we all came down with an illness.  But now, I understand what was really going on.

As a mom, she was suffering in silence.  She didn’t have the luxury of resting to get over an illness.  Instead, she continued on with her daily life like nothing was wrong.  I didn’t understand that until I became a mom.  And I get it now.  From the moment we’re pregnant, we change.  We go from worrying about ourselves to worrying about our family first.  Not that we were selfish before but it’s just different.  If you’re a mom you’ll understand what I’m saying.

Soooooo I made it through the week long illness and I’m finally feeling better!  And I’m looking forward to writing more often.

Until next time,

Chelsea:)
