Sick Men

Why is it that when Mama is sick the show must go on. All meals must be fed, kids taken care of, etc. But when Daddy is sick, the world must stop turning.

Of course its obvious that Daddy always has a worst case of the sickness, right? He must since he can not go on with life. In fact, I've heard of some men (my dad being one of them) say things like, "if I don't make it...". He always fears that the rest of the family may catch what he's got , even if everyone already had something similar, it COULDN'T have been the same disease.

(Keep in mind that I am only speaking hypothetically :)) Thankfully we are all healthy today. Yesterday may have been a different story though.

Is anyWOMAN picking up what I'm putting down? :) LOL.

I can only say I'm blessed in that department, because when mine is sick, he just wants to be left alone. He will let me baby him a little bit, but mostly just leave him alone & let him sleep it off. And if I don't feel good he can take care of the kiddos.

I hear ya, girl! And that video "Man Cold" made me SO MAD the first time I saw it!! I think I had just recently been sick and not received a whole lot of sympathy...
