Please someone tell me how to do this

So I am feeling like cr.ap today. I have a terrible cold that I suspect B gave me, but we are not sure about that yet. I feel so miserable that I don't even know how I will take care of B after work today. I called S to see if he can get off work early for 2 reasons:
  1. To take care of B
  2. To prevent B from catching what I have since we are not sure if he is the one who gave it to me. He's had a cold since mid-August and I feel like there is no end to it!! I feel bad for him because I know he is miserable.

S's response...well I have a conference call at 3 and 4 this afternoon. I am thinking to myself...great. That means to relief for me. I am trying to drink a bunch of tea to see if that will make me feel better and clear up the congestion, but so far no luck. I am taking cold medication, but for some reason that is not helping me out either! Argh.

Oh what to do. B's doing a lot of whining cry lately. Nothing seems to make him happy. Little things will make him cry--like being left in his crib while I prepare his bath or picking him up from his bath to dry him off and leaving all the rubber ducky toys behind..he gets a major meltdown like I flush his goldfish down the toilet or something. Oh this is going to be a fun evening.

I wish I can get a new nose when the one you have is out of commission...it will make my life right now so much easier. Because right now all I want to do is lay in bed and close my eyes. But we all know that there is going to be a 9 month old who is teething and all the glory that comes with that waiting for me as I walk in the door tonight.

ugh ... Feel better soon! I remember the first cold I got after the twins were born, and it sucked! Luckily they didn't catch it ... but I feel what your saying about just not having the energy to take care of anyone but yourself! I hope that you get better quickly and B doesn't get sick!

Sorry to hear that you are sick, are mom's even allowed to be sick?

Take care

Aw, honey. Sorry you're feeling so crappy. It's hard enough to be patient with a cranky baby when you're totally healthy.

It's got to be one of the hardest Mom challenges: taking care of others when someone should be taking care of you.

Hope you feel better asap!
