Motherhood, Migraines and Me
Moms should be exempt from illness. There should be some sort of law passed decreeing that all mothers with children from birth to at least 18 years old should be immune to colds, flus, fevers, nasal congestion, pink eye, "the crud"--anything and everything that will slow us down as moms.
The list would include migraines.
I have been taken down too many times by the wretched monster of a headache. Even with my daily medication, a migraine can still show up and say, "All those things on your To Do list? Not gonna happen!"
Today is one of those days. Migraine trumped motherhood.
I know my caboose kiddo is at school only because she is not here. The last thing I remember doing is getting out of bed, checking the weather, and grabbing appropriate clothes for her to wear. I don't care how ill I am, there are some things a dad should never be left to do on his own.
My husband Rob took over getting Christa breakfast and lunch--and he even took over carpool duty. What a guy!
I'm finally seeing the light of day--just not too brightly, thank you very much. I hate it when my day is shrunk down to a headache. One very large headache.
Once I'm back to normal, I'm calling my congressman and seeing about getting some legislation passed. I bet I can get a few million moms to sign a petition exempting us from being ill. We don't get to take sick days anyway!
