I simply lay on the couch put kid shows on and block them in the room with me that is kid friendly with a bunch of toys in the middle. Plus till I am back on my feet I just do quick healthy snacks that I can just reach and hand them to them when they are hungry.

Yeah, it's not easy being a sick mommy. Nobody takes care of us, that's for sure!



I remember once running a crazy fever, and lying on the floor wrapped in a wool blanket, racked with chills. In August. During a heat wave. And the whole time, my 18-month old was climbing all over me and laughing.



Good times!

ever listen to the flight attendant state "when accompany with children put on your mask first then your childs". Do just that, take care of you first mommy duties can be approached when mommy is better. You will find that children step up when you need it the most. Nothing is more important than your well being!

I usually turn the tv on, give them a movie to watch, and lay on the couch to keep an eye on them. Feel better!

Weird -- no idea. I'm not having any problems with it. Send me a message and describe to me what's happening, okay?
