Mom never gets a sick day...
When Cold season arrives, it is mom who usually ends up taking care of everyone in the family, all the kids and daddy too if he gets it too.
But who takes care of mom when she gets sick? Many times dad will be able to, but if he goes to work, mom tends to stay home just taking care of herself and the kids when they get home from school, but if the kids are not in school yet, then mom only has the baby's nap time to rest. And she has to get up, take care of the baby, make breakfast and make sure everything runs smoothly.
So when does it all change? I would hope that when the kids are teenagers they would give mom a bit more of restful time to recover since they would be capable of taking care of most things by themselves, but one must only hope.
How is it in your home? Do you get someone to take care of you when you are sick? Or do you have to do everything yourself even when you are sick?
