When Mom is Sick

So what happens when Mom gets sick?

Well, in my house this Mom struggles to let go of the reins. My husband offered  to get up to get the girls off to school I should have just stayed in bed but I didn't. We did the tag team thing. It does make things easier but since I wasn't feeling well I was struggling with things a bit this morning. I got up to get lunches together and sign their lunch orders and book orders. Then, because the girls wanted me to drop them off at school, I went along for the ride to school. It is usually me who does school drop off and pick up. I was exhausted when we came home. So I eventually went back to bed.

I slept for several hours. I was much needed rest.

When I got up I did the dishes and cleaned up a bit. My husband picked up the girls from school. And Mom was back on duty. I watched a movie with the girls and fixed them some left overs for dinner.  After some play time, oldest daughters dance class, a trip to the grocery story I finally put the girls to bed. By the end of the night I was exhausted

I just wonder why it is that I find it hard to let someone else have control while I am sick. I know that I need to take care of me so that I can kick this cold but why is it so hard?
