Another First: Sick Mommy
Yesterday as I was sitting at my desk, shutting everything off for the night, I noticed I had a sniffle. Then, a maybe 10 minutes later I started sneezing. And just a few minutes later, I noticed swallowing was less then fun. As I began making dinner I noticed my head started to feel full and heavy, as if the fog was settling over me. And then, my eyes started watering and burning, and I knew I was done.
Within about 1 hour I went from perfectly healthy to miserably sick.
So, how does one care for an infant while sick? An infant who has been fortunate to be healthy since birth. An infant, who by the fact that he is an infant, has a weaker immune system.
Well, evidently, in the MPB household it means that mommy get’s banished and daddy does everything. Mr. MPB took over everything – feedings, diaper changes, snuggling, etc.. This is one of those formula feeding instances I’m thankful for as Baby MPB is not reliant solely on me for nutrition, so Daddy could fully take over. And yes, I realize just how fortunate to be married to such an amazing man, that without hesitation he took over in an effort to try and keep Baby MPB healthy.
And it’s a good thing because I feel absolutely horrible, have basically been in bed since last night. Mr. MPB is not only keep Baby MPB healthy, but he’s also keeping the neocitron coming my way and let me binge watch Fuller House!
So, while Mr. MPB is being super dad, after almost 24 hours of quarantine I do have one thing to complain about: I miss my baby snuggles!!
