Is it okay if I just curl up into a ball and sleep for a few days?
No? Why not?
Oh, because I am Mom and I have laundry to do? And I am supposed to be responsible for all of this other stuff? But I don't want to. I just want to sleep. My kids can take care of themselves, no?
Alright, I get it. Being a mom means never getting enough sleep when you are sick. It means driving your kid(s) to and from school even though your head feels like a giant bubble of mucous. It means that you have to take care of them when they are sick even though you are just as sick. It means that you drink a lot of orange juice and hope that it combats the illness faster.
