Mom's should never get sick

So my question the last day was - Who takes care of you when you're sick????
As a kid growing up I was known as the baby/ whimp when it came to being sick. I would lay on the couch and whine and moan, and I always wanted someone there sitting with me. :( Kinda like my mom, her and I both like to be with someone and just lay on the couch and moan and get lots of sympathy.
Wednesday night Richard and I both started feeling really sick. and the rest of the night is history. And keep in mind we only have one bathroom. :( It was a long night for both of us. i was just dreading the next day. Thankfully both boys slept good that night. All day I wanted to just sit on the couch and moan and have someone visit me. But nope - "mommying" never stops, and b/c Richard was sicker than me - no rest for me. I did get a small nap in, but still had to feed the baby, and take care of Carson. It was a long day for the Gardner house.
I guess my lazy sick days are over. :( No more laying on the couch moaning with someone visiting. I'm the one comforting everyone now. So sad.

Does not feel like Christmas eve to me - and I still have so much to do to get ready.
Now that I'm feeling better - presents to finish wrapping, food to make, and lots and lots of cleaning for my in laws coming tonight.
Tomorrow should be so much fun with family. Hoping the sickness is all behind us so we can enjoy Christmas together.

I still wish I could be there when you're sick because I TOTALLY know how you feel! But, life has moved on and you're a mother now, and it will be different for you. You can be sure if I was there, I would have just sat and visited with you and I would take care of your kids. In the meantime, my thoughts are ALWYAS with you!
