Mommy Needs a Sick Day

Dave has been flirting back and forth with a cold for a few weeks now.  Eli has woken up with a bit of a cough.  I’ve been the healthy one.  I’ve been the one taking care of everybody else.  Yesterday the cold finally caught up with me and today I feel anything but fabulous.  The benefits of being a stay-at-home mom are amazing, but where are the sick days?

The perfectionist in me still wants to do it all and be a great mommy, but the truth is I’m just not feeling up to it.  So today we’ll stay in our pajamas a bit longer, the dishes may not all get cleaned, and Eli will play by himself a little more while Mommy rests on the couch.

And it will all be okay…
