This is just a sook.......but......
DD1 has bought a cough/cold home from kindy and I came down with it 2 days ago and DD2 was up all night with a fever and runny nose. DH and I got about 2 hours of solid sleep.
I'm just quietly dying on the lounge floor trying to rest and not cough my lungs up with my two sick kids ferreting around beside me. They are coping a lot better than me.
I can't call anyone over to care for the girls as I'd be putting them at risk of catching it.
I really wish Mums got sick days!
