Before I was a mom I was rarely ever sick. Id occasionally get a stuffy nose here and there. But when I told people I was sick, it was usually to get out of going somewhere or doing something.
Now that I’m a mom I’m sick more often than expected. Why? Because I now have a tiny human who sneezes and coughs ON my face. Before I could just avoid anyone sick by not getting too close or literally staying away from them. No chance of that anymore. My tiny human brings every sick bug to me in the form of snot or spit.
All I can hope is that with all the snot and spit being flung my way, comes a stronger immune system. Oh the joys of motherhood!
