1862982.jpgOkay, stop me if you’ve heard this before.  Men are such BABIES when they’re sick!  I swear, I don’t think in all my 30 odd years of being married I have ever been allowed to be sick by myself!  If I have a headache, my husband has a tumor.  If I have a stomach ache – he needs to get his pumped!

Why don’t they want us to be sick?  Is it because they don’t want to take care of us?  Is it the attention thing?  Not wanting to do housework?  HELLO!  Not like they do it when we’re healthy.  God knows laundry waits for no virus.  I could be lying in bed, liquid pouring from eyes, ears, nose, etc, and he would still come to me and ask “when is supper ready?”

Recently I had the flu.  Not a very pleasant experience, let me tell you.  I was bedridden, fever, stomach ache, all the lovely things that go along with the flu, and asked my husband to take care of me.  Know how well he did it?  He turned the t.v on and passed me the remote.  Thank you very much!  Good thing I didn’t need him to pee for me.  Lot of good that would have done.

I tried to teach my children to take care of themselves, but at the same time, I want them to know it’s okay to ask for help.  Put a white flag at the door when you’re sick, I told my daughter.  Tell your husband that you will not be feeding him, washing his clothes, or any other activity until you are back on your feet and the house is clean.  My son – I told him that I would come box his ears if he didn’t take care of his wife.  I often threaten to yell at my mother in law for not teaching her son better, but she is half deaf and would probably misunderstand.

That’s my steam for today…
