Two weeks ago my husband was out of town for a few days and I had both kids by myself. Not a big deal, but it turned into a hardship because I became sick with strep throat. Trying to get a 3-year-old to bed while I was feeding the baby was hard enough — add the exhaustion, muscle aches and razors in my throat, it was not fun.
Now, two weeks later, I have strep throat again. Thankfully my husband doesn’t have to go out of town so I can rest and hopefully get better for good this time.
This happens to moms all the time. We go, go, go until we collapse. We do everything. We ignore signs of illness thinking we can just make it through another day.Â This is my body’s way of telling me to rest.
