I have been sick plenty of times in my life, however this is my first time being sick as a mom. It’s a littttttttttle different. Because now I can’t just gulp down some cold medicine and crawl under the covers and wake up when I feel better. Liam still needs to eat, be changed, be entertained, and be loved multiple times a day – which is awesome and I love doing it, but I just don’t feel like I can get a step up on this cold.
Plus, Liam is sick, too. So I’m constantly worried about him, even though I think he’s taking this sickness thing slightly better than I am.
Oh yeah, and did I mention we both got Pinkeye, too?
No, really. I have Pinkeye.
The kind where you wake up in the middle of the night and think you’re blind because you can’t open your eyes. I literally looked like I’d been in a fist fight Sunday morning. And of course it had to be the day I was showcasing my photography at a bridal show. I wore my fake glasses in hopes the reflection would hide my big, swollen, bright RED eye. Seriously, the usage of the word “pink” in the title is misleading. I should write a strongly worded letter to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Liam’s eye was infinitely better than mine, though, which was good because no one should have to go through this, especially a little baby.
It’s like, I hear you universe, but I don’t really know what you’re telling me.
You want me to stay home from the gym for a week and lose what I’ve been working so hard to get back? Cool. Oh, and you want me to feel even less motivated than usual to fold the laundry, do the dishes and cook dinner? Super.
But I’m not bitter.
Good news is Liam is wearing his camo today and that always puts a smile on my face. #tacticalbaby. AND I finally brought out my good camera for a photo session. It actually made me feel better.
It’s the little things at this point, I guess
If you need me, I’ll be sipping hot tea and eyeballing (with my big red eye) that pile of laundry in the corner.
