One of the things that nobody tells you, and if they did tell me, I wasn’t listening or didnt care!
My son picked up a nasty chest infection again recently and he has been really unwell and super clingy. 👍🏻Love the cuddles, 👎🏻 hate him being poorly, 👎🏻 hate not getting s*** done.
He hasn’t wanted me to leave his side at all, even when I need the toilet, he has come in crying. “I want youuuuuu”. Yep he’s super duper adorable!
Can’t a Mummy have a poo in peace?
Apparently not, is the answer, this doesn’t just go for when they are poorly. Just on a normal day, escaping the chaos to the retreat of the bathroom to sit and make for a minute or two is like a break, untill you are disturbed. 🤦🏻♀️
Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t change it for the world. I wanted nothing more than to be a mother for so long. But seriously having a poo in peace should not be a luxury! 😂😂
All is well that ends well as today he managed to nap long enough for me to have a bath (including washing my hair and shaving my legs) AND drying my hair and doing half of my make up! 💁🏻💪🏼
Most importantly he is getting better, thank goodness for modern medicine 🙏🏼
Times like this make me realise how fortunate I am to be self employed. No calling in missing work and being penalised for taking care of my child and missing work and losing pay.
Also this reminded me why I LOVE WORKING WITH WOMEN AND MOTHERS!! 💁🏻💁🏾💁🏼💁🏿💁🏽
Because, Lordy!! YOU GET IT!! I had clients booked for today, all women and no complaints, they understood, no extra unnecessary stress for me. In fact they all said they hope he gets well soon etc. How wonderful is that? Would my ex boss have done that? HELL NO.
He’d have huffed and puffed behind my back in the office and missing that day for my son would have gone against me for any future promotions.
So today instead of the scheduled consultations, coaching calls, admin & filming. We’ve done the school run, administered several lots of medicine, watched Spider-Man had loads of cuddles, squeezed in a bath for me, make up application more medicine, a bit of food more cuddles more cuddles and time for the school run again shortly.
Most importantly he’s getting better, he’s in the right hands & I AM GUILT FREE 👌🏼✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅
Which I am so grateful for 🙏🏼💜
