When Your Child Is Sick, You Can Kiss Your Sleep Goodbye!

Giant cut of coffee

When your child is sick, you’re hurting for them. When they wake you up in the middle of the night, crying and in pain: your hurting for them. Who is hurting for you, after being up all night taking care of your child?

My husband goes to work, and I work from home mostly. So when our son is sick, I have to drop everything I’m doing and or have to rescheduled everything in order to take care of my little boy. I’m not complaining about taking care of him. I’m complaining about taking care of him while still having to work, on no sleep while managing my regular duties.

It’s not easy having to function on barely any or no sleep, while your poor child is crying because they don’t feel good. On top of this happening all the time, I always have to hear from people thinking I’m a stay at home house wife who doesn’t have a real job. At first it didn’t bother me, but after years on constantly hearing that I just stayed at home and did nothing, it started getting under my skin.

It always feels as if what I do isn’t appreciated or goes unnoticed. Just because 75% of the time I don’t have to get dressed up to go into work, doesn’t mean I don’t work. I work just as hard. While working, I also have to take care of our son, our puppy, our house, the cooking, the cleaning, the laundry, the bills, and everything else that gets thrown my way. I love doing it all, but I just wish it is understood that my job is real.

I’m fortunate enough that I could work from anywhere I want(as long as I have internet connection and my lap top). Plus lots of coffee. 


Working Mothers should stick together and always stand up for one another. It’s wishful thinking, but you know there will always be a mother who thinks they are perfect and you’re doing it wrong. Don’t fall for it, it’s all a lie they just want to make you feel like crap. There’s nothing that a bottle of wine can’t fix.

If you ever see a mother who is stressed out or is struggling, let her know that she is doing the best she can and it will get better. 








now go take care of your child, how dare you take some time for yourself!
