When sickness strikes!
So you have had a week in the sun , you have your to do list you make excellent progress on day one, everyone back in the system then day two a sick bug! This can not be happening! Not only do I hate sick and poo a resistant child who’s throwing up isn’t a pretty sight! Totally helpless every towel we own used , it’s both ends!!!! every plan made every meeting all rearranged and I’m forced to sit with a puking child ,and I was really annoyed about it, but do you know what I happily will because it’s the only time in his life he wants a cuddle ,so I peg my nose and inhale him a while , my little one who appears to not need any physical interaction at the best of times , when he’s poorly I get confirmation he does actually need me , he needs a hug too and for today I’m happy to become his human lounge chair , these times are so precious he’s just started school I really miss him, and so I’m a little thankful for this time .
So many mums mask Illness, and send them to school anyway for selfish reasons or work I feel this is so wrong for a few different reasons , you should always be able to drop everything for your own kids if you do not work , your workplace is Slightly different I get that ,but the knock on effect of sending your child to school within that 48 hr period could mean another child getting poorly , like mine! My child will be at home with his germs until he is clear , which on one hand if I’m honest my initial reaction wasn’t the best its a pain as I have lots to do this week, but on the other hand I think nature did me a favour today and I really needed that hug from him 💙
