Calling in Sick

I feel like the parent in those DayQuil commercials "Moms/Dads don't take sick days."

My smug ass finally got the flu. My mom and I have been in a war of wills for the past decade over the flu shot. I never want to get the shot, because I always feel flu-ish after I get it, and some years, they say the shot is useless. I got the vaccine while I was pregnant, and last year, too. But, this year I started in with my cries over how the shot makes me feel yucky and managed to slink away unnoticed.

But now I have the flu, and I'm like WHY DIDN'T I GET THAT SHOT?

I'm taking Tamiflu and I feel like I am on the upswing. *Fingers crossed* I haven't had the actual flu in years, maybe decades, and I have never been this sick with a child. It's the pits. Today I've been bailed out because my husband is working from home. I also have my mom who lives super close. K is tearing the house to shreds. I have taken up residence on our couch. We are a hot mess.

It's K's birthday week, and it's already off to a rocky start.

  1. Oh NO! feel better. I too skipped the shot, but got one for Rose. I figure better me than her, but now I'm not so sure.

    1. Thanks, M! I'm finally functional. Steer clear of anyone who is coughing or looks miserable. I'm glad R had the flu shot. Our little ones can't get this nasty flu!!
