Sick Mum staring down the barrel of a day looking after kids


Today I had lost my voice so I couldn't go to my radio job at NEW FM nor could I take my yoga class at The Ohana Room because society doesn't expect you to go to work if you're not well enough. Unfortunately the job of Motherhood never stops, even when you're tired and sick the alarm of the crying baby goes off all hours of the night and demands your attention all day. So I developed a plan, it's not a great one but maybe you could do it sometime? Because I knew there'd be no park or outside fun, I blew up the big double bed mattress of guests put it in the lounge room and witnessed my toddler jumping out all her energy. We got to nap time and she went down. The baby enjoyed rolling around on it too.
