No rest for the wicked

No rest for the wicked

I woke up this morning with a migraine and proceeded to throw up. Poor Ava was so sweet. She was very concerned about me hugging the toilet and making the barfy noises I was. :( So I managed to blurt out, “Mommy’s very sick.” She kept saying, “very sick.” Then I told her that “Mommy had to throw up.” And she kept saying, “Ava throw up too.” She’s such an empathic little girl.

I did start feeling better later in the day, only to come down with the cold Ava’s had the last few days. Ugh.

Why don’t mommies get “sick days?” :(


  1. I certainly feel for you. I hope you continue to feel better. The last time I was ill Moose thought I was playing peek-a-boo by hiding my face in a bucket. Then he got a bath at 3:00am because what else would keep him busy in there? Being a SAHM is great, but the sick days and personal days are non-existent! Get well soon!

  2. Hope you feel better soon!!! And what a sweet, caring daughter you have in Ava. Very nice. Get well!

  3. I hope you feel better now. Hugs to you and little Ava!

  4. That is the MILLION dollar question! I was asking myself that last week! Every day I ever take off, is NEVER for ME!!!!! Sorry…a little rant there! Hope you are doing better.

  5. Migranes are the WORST! Was Jody able to help you care for Ava? Cause I know all you need to do is just lay in bed in the dark and quiet for a few hours. How awful!

  6. Awww, Ava is so sweet :) I hope you are feeling better soon!

  7. Elizabeth gets a gold star for her brilliant idea. The last time I was sick, I was lying half in and half out of our powder room while the kids played in the family room. But they could certainly play in the tub!

    I hope you feel better soon. Being a sick mommy is the pits!

  8. Ugh! Healthy thoughts your way.

    What a sweet, loving little one you have. :)
