I was recently out of commission with a capital C fever, chills I could paint you a far more descriptive picture of me but I’ll spare you the gory details of my annual cold. Suffice it to say I easily buzzed through a few boxes of Kleenex. And although I was feeling as though my head were made of lead and my taste buds would never regain their function- life continued on- and there remained the issue of my kids.
Despite my hacking cough as a mom this means very little; dishes still have be cleaned, homework done, meals served and the list goes on. Thankfully I had a bit of a back-up aka my husband. However, when I finally came out of my cough syrup- Motrin induced-haze I faced a mounting pile of dishes and laundry the likes of which would have one believe I housed an army full of kids as opposed to just two.
So for all the moms out there who never stop multi-tasking, who do their utmost to keep their kids grinning from ear to ear, packing their vacation days with festive events and probably don’t even consider taking five minutes out for themselves keep reading for Weight Watchers Peachy Keen Cake (Just 3 points) and a few ways to pamper yourself.
