Who's my care taker?

Well me and the kids are sick and it's no fun. My least favorite thing about motherhood. It's ok when the kids are sick but when you get sick too, that's no good. Full-time mom's don't have sick days like the hubby. The hubby gets to take a day off and you take care of him or let him take naps when he needs to. When you are mom you get none of that. You get a nap if the kids let you. You don't get to throw your fits because you are trying to get one of the kids to calm down from theirs. I guess lucky for me tomorrow is the weekend so I'll have help, that is if the hubby doesn't get as sick as us, and then in that case, I turn into the care taker of everyone again, even though I'm sick.
On a side note, Stir Fry doesn't act sick for the most part, just has the symptoms (cough and runny nose), while Baluga on the other hand is very tempermental besides the symptoms. Yesterday when the hubby or myself couldn't calm her down, she went to her brother and stopped crying and just cuddled. I guess she needed her big brother to love her and hold her and tell her it was going to be ok. That just melted my heart.

It was pretty heart warming to watch the two little ones cuddle together. For those readers out there I did let her take Saterday off and I took care of her and the kids as much as she would let me. She is a little stubern with it comes to taking it easy.
