Sick Day Schmick Day....

Yesterday, I woke up with a terrible headache. I lounged on the couch with the quilt my grandma made me and tried not to die while the kids played and tried not to incite homicidal rage. They were actually very well behaved and, for the most part, tried to be considerate. Yet, around noon, I still found myself having to utter the following: "Let her out!  You can't lock your sister in the washing machine! That's completely unsafe! What were you thinking!" Which answers the question of why mothers can't ever, ever have sick days. Sigh.  I apologize for my lengthy absence on the blogging front and promise to attempt to do better.  I have no real excuse except...  Well...  I needed a break.  


  1. *snort* I think that we need sick days in the form of rental au pairs covered by insurance or something.

  2. HILARIOUS!! I had a day the other day where I considered crossing the street and paying the neighbor girl to babysit while I locked myself in the bathroom for an hour...ALONE!

  3. That's hysterical! You're right, though. Moms do need sick days!
