When Dr. Mom gets sick
Mom heeds a wake-up call. My daughter got sick on Sunday, so that night into Monday I cared for her, neglecting my own cold and the fact that the OTC medicine dries me out. Long story short, I spent most of today in bed sipping water and rehydrating. I bounced back faster when I was 17. I am not a huge water drinker to begin with it, so this is a wake-up call. I will make sure to have a large water bottle at the ready all times and will no longer count tea, and Caffix as "water." And Sylvie will hold me accountable (she is an excellent water drinker).
(P.S. A shout-out to my mom who went above and beyond on her Tuesday's after school with Sylvie.)
