This Mommy Thing

Makes me feel helpless.

Daniel’s still feverish, and I was able to get his fever down so I can drop him off at daycare — and I managed to get a doctor’s note, so that his caregivers can baby Tylenol while there.

 But no no no no — I didn’t want to drop him off, I didn’t want to go to my freaking JOB — I wanted to be there to take care of my sick kid.

How do working moms do this?  I’m new at this, and I feel like a damn IDIOT, as my little boy’s fever just keeps coming back, and the reason for it is because his mommy submitted him to SHOTS because It’s the Right Thing To Do.

I keep saying to him, “I’m sorry, Daniel.  Mommy is so sorry,” as I hold his feverish body.

DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN, does it ever get any easier?

Short answer: NO.  DEAL.


Okay… back to my regularly scheduled freakin’ job…

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
