I haven’t slept on a bathroom floor since college. The cool tile felt so good on my forehead.
The one benefit of not being in college anymore is that I have a toddlers potty chair in the bathroom so when things are coming out both ends I have a better solution now.
Don’t tell Astrid I did that.
Anyway, something hit me at yesterday at 4pm – maybe The Rapture, maybe that TLC What Not to Wear was highlighting a Minnesota woman and filmed it at the State Fair..because you know we all farmers or something, maybe an immaculate conception, maybe the lettuce I had for lunch…but most probably the flu. Esther and Astrid both had the pukes last week so it was evidently my turn.
Jed was working last night so as I was dying on the bathroom floor Eloise made dinner and served dinner. Esther cleaned up the table and the dishes. The girls stepped over me and took a shower and showered their baby sister too. They got her into jammies and settled onto the couch to watch Rudolph before bed. Eloise told me they could get Astrid to bed with no problem.
No one asked me for anything and they all spoke in whisper voices as to not disturb me.
I know my job as a mom is to work myself out of a job…but I had no idea it would happen so soon.
So my plan is when I’m feeling better to take up drinking tea and eating bon-bons all day while I watch daytime talk shows because my work here is done.
If you could send over some ginger ale though I’d be ever so grateful as for some reason these damn kids cannot drive. Seriously?
