How old is your kid? What are they sick with? I am definitely not jealous of you right now – my heart goes out to you though. I’m a little sick right now (long story, but its not contagious) and my poor partner has been taking such good care of me. He’s been in your shoes basically!

Right now it’s 1:19 here (Ohio). I just got back in town (was at a conference) and was so exhausted, plus my good anti-nausea med makes me drowsy, I took a nap.

honey i feel your pain! oh I so remember being With a sick lil one! Ick and being sick yourself and tired SUCKS. Your post made me giggle as I remember the first time Fiance spent the night with sick kid. My son was vomiting in the hallway and I slept through it but Fi woke up and peeked out and said ” you ok?” and my kid yelled back ( which woke me up) ” OBVIOUSLY NOT!” and continued to yack in the hallway. That is a fond memeory for us all:)

I have immune issues so I catch EVERYTHING. Part of my current health problem involves GI stuff, so there were some close calls on my flights to and from teh conference (lucky the flight was only about an hour). It’s good that so young he’s already a good handwasher! 

I always feel so terrible when my best friend’s daughter (she’s 4) is sick. Even as an adult I realllllly hate throwing up. I’m almost 30 and I will fully admit that Thursday night in my hotel room I was throwing up, and called my partner crying and whimpering like a four year old (“I want to go hooooome!!!” I pondered getting an earlier flight but it would have cost $900!).

I had C. Diff (spore like bacteria in GI tract) around Thanksgiving. My partner’s brother was living with us still then (ugh! Thats its own annoying drama story) so I was being even more vigilant about trying to keep things clean. I was washing my hands so much with antibacterial soap that my dry hands were cracking. So gross. I was applying thick foot cream to them at night.

@Take The Reins: I am a K teacher and I wash my hands CONSTANTLY since i get sneezed on daily and I Lysol daily too. It’s inevitable at that age. Kids ( who don’t know better) are grody!!)

@Take The Reins: I know my partner felt bad when he would go to work b/c he just worries. I ended up calling my mom the one night and she could hear our pup whimpering at me. He pretty much is my shadow anyway. I pretty much turn into an utter baby if I’m throwing up. So much other stuff I can deal with, but throwing up is the worst for me. I’m usually super independent and I don’t like to rely on others. My partner has helped me be comfortable allowing him to help.

@Take The Reins: Ha – it’d be a little funny if you did time it that way on purpose! My friends and I call that sort of timing “waitress timing” – like, when the waitress asks if you need something it’s always when you have just taken a big ol’ bite of food.

Happy birthday! Sorry it’s probably not being spent the best way. Tell your Fiance he can make it up to you another day 🙂 My partner’s birthday was Tuesday. tuesdays are my long days (I get home usually around 11pm, or a little later) and then Wednesday I flew out. I felt awful that I didn’t bake or anything for him, and I couldn’t make dinner unless he was cool waiting til after midnight to eat. Plus I’m still sick. He picked up food for us, but I’m still eating a primarily liquid (with some soft, bland foods) diet so I didn’t really eat a whole lot. Actually, he got spinach dip as an appetizer, and we went in teh bedroom b/c I wanted to ask him about which dress I should wear for my workshop (I wanted to pack ahead of time so after work on Wednesday we could hightail it straight to the airport). All of a sudden I look at him and go, “Wait – did you put the lid on teh dip?” our dog is some sort of magician and even if I pull all of the chairs away from the table he can get on it (and he’s a pug! he’s not tall). he’s latest game is all about getting on the table – he’s almost 2 and he’s never ever done this before. In the whole 3 minutes we weren’t in the dining room, the dog ate teh WHOLE container!!
