It's the most wonderful time of year...flu season

It's interesting to see how different people handle illness.

Nate and I were just talking about how people handle pain differently, and I think that everyone has an illness tolerance too. I don't know if that is nature or nurture.

When I am sick, even if it's just a little bit, I like to be taken care of. I like to lay around and cuddle up and especially to get back rubs, which I think all comes down to how my mom took care of us when we were sick.

Nate, on the other hand, likes to be left alone. I have the urge to take care of him any way that I can, but he just will tough it out and act like nothing is wrong.

I know that I will want to take care of my children too, so I guess I had better learn to buck up and stop milking being sick!

Thanks mom for still thinking of me though. When my parents came to visit on Thanksgiving, my mom brought soup, juice and tissues just in preparation for me being sick :) Suxh a good mom!

  1. You're welcome. I will always want to take care of you when you are sick. I know you will be the same when you become a mom. I am always only six hours away if you need me!
