What to do when mama's sick?
Tis the season to be sick! We can have tons of ideas of how to entertain a sick toddler, but what do we do when we ourselves are sick? Are there things left undone? How do we give attention to the kids if we're lying in bed? An urbanMama emails:
For the last month, it's been one cold after the next in our household. My son is 11 months old and HATES staying at home all day with nobody to play with. But when he's sick or I'm sick, we can't make play dates with friends. I've had a cold with coughing and sneezing for 4-5 days now. We've been reading books and playing with toys and taking the occasional walk, but he's extremely bored and antsy. I foresee a lot of this in the upcoming months. How do you cope when Mama's sick?
