It's just a flesh wound

I'm not feeling well. No, let me amend that. I am sick. There I said it. Admitting sickness is not easy when you're a mom. The main reason being, there is just no point. Really there’s not.
After all, the things that need getting done still need getting done. The packing of lunches, making of appointments, sewing patches on karate uniforms, whatever. This list is endless and yours alone.

Although hearing some kind words of concern is always nice. I’m sure we all hear something similar.

Oh, sorry you’re not feeling well. Would you mind putting the coffee on?

You were up all night? That really sinks. Remember I'm working late than going out for drinks tonight.

You really should take it easy today. I'm late for the train. Would you drag the trash out front?

Feel free to add your own. I need to go puke.


  1. Oh, how very true it is. Being a mother is probably one of the most thankless jobs there is. The problem is, we make it look so easy that people take it for granted. Maybe we should start complaining more; put our feet up when we do get sick and refuse to do anything. Maybe then they'd appreciate us more. Then again, maybe not.

    Loved your post :) Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Thanks nerdywords, I am doing much better today. I think you might be on to something with the complaining ;-)

    BTW you're the first person to leave a comment on my blog. Thanks for taking the time.

  3. Visiting from 6WS and because you had such a cool sounding blog name. Sorry you're not feeling well.

    Mum's don't have time to be sick, everyone expects us to just keep on keeping on. Hope you're taking some 'me' time to get yourself better.

  4. I do hope you feel better soon; it is tough to be feeling sick and having young kids to take care of. Been there, done that, and it is never fun.


  5. I feel for you. Sadly, I know all too well how this works. Hope you are feeling better soon.
