When you're sick

When you're sick and don't have kids, you sleep all day.

When you're sick and have one or two kids, you call hubby to come help.

When you're sick and you have three or four kids, you call in grandma to take over.

When you're sick and you have eight kids, you clean the living room and get out the Christmas decorations while hubby changes the overdue oil in the vans... :)


  1. Parent of 2 here. Calling hubby when sick to take over? HAHAHAHAHAHA!! You're funny. ;) I do the same as you - I keep trudging along!

  2. Bless your heart, hope the Bulgarian junk is gone soon!

  3. Praying for swift healing so you may enjoy that newly decorated tree with your eight kiddos!

  4. ha made me smile... :) get well soon! and good luck with decorating for Christmas :)

  5. I'm sorry you're sick, but I totally disagree with this post. Probably the first time I've ever disagreed. I have 4 kids but they are all spread out. I have never had someone help me when I was sick. I've always had to do what needed to be done, even when I had my hysterectomy. My husband used his vacation to take care of the kids while I was in the hospital, but from the day I came home, I was on my own with them. We live several hours from any family and have always been on our own.
