When mom gets sick…

  • Tables do not get cleared.
  • Dishes do not get done.
  • Children do not get dressed.
  • Children’s hair does not get brushed.
  • Dinners consist of Happy Meals and pizza.
  • Baby gets 3 diaper changes a day.
  • Toys do not get put away.
  • Cushion forts do not get torn down.
  • Children’s teeth do not get brushed.
  • Children are stimulated by Elmo, Dora and Diego.
  • Garbage gets taken to the curb, but not the recycling.
  • Dad is exhausted from taking care of everything.

Poor Dad (wait: was that the world's smallest violin I just heard?)

As for 3 diaper changes per day, I think that after about 6 mo, my kids only got 4 diaper changes, even on a good day!

oh - i can relate to this list. however, with me being pregnant, grumpy and nauseous, your list sounds more like my every other day than a day of sickness. hope you're feeling better!

That list makes me tired. I can't believe that *I* do that every day...

Hope you are feeling better, LoriD! I so appreciate your bloggy self.

This is funny, in the kind of way that also makes me bitter and angry at my husband. Hope you feel better soon!
