Why Mom Can’t Get Sick!



Another reason why us mom’s need to stay healthy through exercise and clean eating is that we CAN NOT GET SICK! I came down with a stomach bug at the beginning of the week and was in bed the whole day. Now don’t get me wrong I have an amazing husband and kids who are a big help but when mom is down for a day it is still a major CRISIS!!! I managed to get the kids out of the house and on the bus before heading for the bedroom but of course the day can’t run smoothly from there. By 9:30 I started getting phone calls from the school. My youngest daughter Charley is battling mono right now and so some days are great and others are terrible. Well on this day she was starting to not feel good so I talked to the secretary subbing for me and just asked her to keep tabs on her and her temperature. Well I received a couple more phone calls from the school and Charley until lunchtime hit and so did a fever. So I am in bed and visiting the bathroom A LOT and now my daughter needs to come home. Have I mentioned I live 30 minutes from the school so needless to say unless I could strap on a diaper, this mom was not going to make it. Thank the Lord I have an amazing mother-in-law who I called to rescue both Charley and myself. She went and got Charley and took her to her house to rest for the afternoon. Then the craziness of what to do with kids after school hit. My oldest daughter Riley had an awards ceremony after school for an essay contest she had placed in so she needed to be there and my son Wesley had basketball practice and did I mention he left his sports bag at home. Well the phone calls started again as I figured out who could get Riley to the ceremony and where Wesley needed to go. Of course I am super mom (lol) and got everything figured out and then called my husband to debrief him about all three kid’s plans for the evening. All that was left to do was to run Wesley his bag and pick up the girls from his moms. Thank goodness I had some leftover soup in the frig that they could warm up for dinner. After that day I realized how important it was for me to work to stay as healthy as possible. I know you all have similar stories and I would love to hear them so comment below if you have had crazy family days when you have been sick.
