This is the first sick day I've taken since The Lad was born. It was noon before I felt human. I've kept down water, four saltines and a cup of applesauce. I've slept most of the day and still have a headache.
And yet I feel like I'm being spoiled, sitting home in the quiet, napping and reading and futzing on the computer.
This is motherhood. It makes you grateful for being sick.
