Mama's Don't Get Sick Days

It's been one long week. Monday night I developed a fever that lasted a little over 24 hours. I was sick. So very, very sick. Barfing, headache, chills, body aches, etc. Tuesday was absolute torture. I can't even explain to you in words how awful I felt. I couldn't get Molly to school and I was much to ill to even get Anthony to the bus stop. I hate that my kids have to suffer when I get ill. I don't even know how I survived Tuesday. Sam couldn't stay home, so I pretty much layed dying on the couch with no one to take care of me and children still wanting my attention. You see, Mama's don't get sick days. Ever. The kids did the best they could to be self reliant though. They ate whatever they could reach on the pantry shelves that didn't involve any actual cooking. They stayed in their p.j.s all day. I gave them a free pass with cartoons. Luckily Timothy only pooped once. I fed him when he was hungry, but other than that, he was thrown to the mercy of the children. They did a good job keeping him entertained for the most part. I'm much better now, though I've got a bit of a head cold and still feel really drained and run down. On top of all that horribleness, I also developed a blocked milk duct that has been causing me issues and I can't seem to get rid of it. I've been in contact with my midwife since then and hopefully will have that resolved shortly with the different herbal tinctures and vitamin c she has given me along with some other helpful tips. 

Enough about sickness. Tomorrow we are off to my mom's in California for Thanksgiving! We're waking up super early to hit the road. Hopefully we'll get to her place in time for dinner, depending on if we get out of the house as early as we hope to. Our neighbors will once again be watching all our animals for us. Sweet!

We have a few fun adventures planned for our stay. One being a trip to Six Flags! YES!!!! I'm sooooo excited! This will be the first time Sammy and I have been to an amusement park since before we got pregnant with Anthony. I'm a roller coaster lover and am really looking forward to getting my adrenaline pumping! Whoop!

I'll be bringing my computer with me to CA, and if I have time, I'll hop on because there's a special "thankful" post I'd like to do. 

Think happy thoughts for us on our 12 hour drive! :)

With love,
Mama Hauck


  1. Sorry to hear you were sick. Believe it or not when I feel like crap I often wonder how parents (especially moms) do it.


Please share your thoughts with me!
