    How do you with being ill with LO? Having the flu a couple of weeks ago was bad enough but this evening I've come down with sickness and diareah (sp). How on earth do you keep going?

    I guess it must be one of those things you do cos you have to.

    Fingers crossed I'll be ok in a few hours :cry:

    Honey, when moms get sick you still do what you do for your kids. Different when dads are sick and can lie around. :rofl:

    Hope you feel better soon!

    I was sick with bronchittis a few years back around Christmas. It was a few days beforehand and I started to wrap all 5 kids' gifts. It was 1 a.m., it had to get done that night and Dan said that I should go to bed as I looked like shit. I asked him "Who the hell is going to wrap the gifts then?"

    Isn't that like a man? Their hurts and pains are 100 times worse than what it really is.

    There have been times when I've been sick, recovered and then Dan got it. I swear his was far worse and he even asked "So, you had this too?" Hmm, yeah! Meanwhile I am taking care of the kids while I am sick and when he is, he's on the couch.

    :rofl: at the gift wrapping, james has done this too, but he likes to buy all different wrap and wrap everything up separately, i collect tatty teddys (grey bears) and its so funny how he wraps them up, and then puts in air holes so they can breathe! you should have seen how much paper he used wrapping my four foot bear!! :rofl:

    I supose you just have to cope.
    I was very very ill at one point but had to pretend i didnt have it and trudge on.
    Taking Carly to school is the worst as i dont drive so i have to walk there!

    But it has to be done as no one else will do it :lol:
