Mom, I don’t feel so good
You know it’s going to happen at some point of the winter – someone in the house is going to get sick and all the things that you had planned for that day (or week) is put on the back burner. It’s funny how we all run around clucking how we don’t have time for this and we don’t have time for that, yet nothing clears the boards like a 101* fever staring back at you from the thermometer.
If you’re like me, you’re fortunate to work in an environment where you don’t HAVE to be in an office to be productive. I can work just as hard from my dining room as I do from my office and when my kids are sick, I’m not going to be anywhere else but within earshot.
But once I have them tucked into a cocoon, either in their room, my room or the living room, I still have to get my work done and that means a marathon day of movies with a side of napping, ginger-ale and chicken noodle soup.
I’ve found that these are the days where, if I play my cards right, I can get some quality mom & kid time in. I don’t care how old they are, when kids don’t feel well the one thing that remains true is that they want their moms. So get your work or chores done in little bursts and when it’s time, grab the tissues and cuddle up with your kids and pick one of these movies from Netflix. Trust me, you’ll both feel better and who knows, maybe you’ll get a little nap in, too!
If you’ve got older kids, these are some great suggestions. Daddy Day Care was always one of our favorites and we can’t skip over it if it’s on!
If you’ve got little, little ones nothing breaks your heart more than when they’re sick. They just don’t understand not feeling well.. Netflix has some super cute episodes that can help talk about being sick and being healthy in a way your young ones can relate to!
Knock on wood, we haven’t had anything major this season but it’s only January so I’m not naive to think we’re in the clear. In the case that they do, I’m glad to know that we’ve got a whole lot of movies and shows at our disposal to ease our pain!
