When Mama Is Sick


When Mama is sick,

She can stay away from work,

She can postpone her housework for a few more days

But it is tough for her to take time-off away from her responsibilities as a mom.



I guess when a Mama is sick, she will remain concerned whether her young children have been eating well, completing their school homework, being neglected, taking good care of themselves….

Yes, there is no Sick Leave from Parenting.

At least, for me, my children’s well-beings will always be above mine…even when I am sick or busy.

This is also the unconditional love of a mom as I witnessed in my mom and also friends who are moms.


When I fall sick, it is common for my young one to crawl up and down of my bed, blast my ears with loud TV volume, rattle into my ears with my eyes closed and pester…

Despite all these, when I open my eyes from those interrupted sleep- the bright smile that I see, the warm touch from their little hands and the sincere gaze into my eyes - never fail to make me feel better *Smile*.


When we fall sick, nothing is more important than having our family around us, to show their care and concern and lend a helping hand.

For this, I am glad that Papa Ed is here to help with all the domestic chores and remind this stubborn mommy to swallow those large pills.

And the boys are learning to take care of themselves and squabble less when mommy is sick these few days. I am taking a short break to finally treat my health with care.

I am truly thankful when I compare to those years, when I had to juggle alone, with 2 young kids, even when I was sick.

This is another lesson in life to teach me not to take people and things for granted.

[Thank you! To my 3 guys at home]
