I know that no one likes to be sick, I know it is not enjoyable for everyone. But the other day, Tuesday to be exact I became quite convinced that Mothers should not be able to get sick. I became very envious of my husband that day and actually thought about switching him rolls. I have always wanted to stay home with my children but the idea of calling in a sick day and then coming home to sleep sounded very appealing. Even going to work and doing a lazy, crappy job sounded better than having children fussing and demanding my full attention all day. Because the day I am sick William woke up from his nap and cried for an hour and would not come down stairs (I have no idea why either) , went pee in his pants, dropped a full cup of yogurt on the carpet and himself, and Gracie wanted me to hold her every second.
Russ got out of class around noon and called me to tell me he needed to study and then go donate plasma. I seriously started crying and decided that (because I felt the same way I do when I am pregnant) that he could- okay, must was actually what I was thinking- get a vasectomy the next day. I also wanted to yell into the phone, "FINE, NEXT TIME YOU ARE SICK I AM GOING TO "NEED" TO DO SOMETHING AND LEAVE THE KIDS WITH YOU ALL DAY." But I didn't because I knew he would have come home if he could have and when he did get home we were all still alive.
I just think that with all the other changes that happen to your body during pregnancy and child birth, there should be something to trigger the never-get-sick-again gene. I know this wouldn't work for adoptive mothers, but we could all just help them out because none of us would ever get sick again! I know I am living in a dream world, but I really like my dream world.
