Sick Day for Mom? Time to Stock Up on Vicks DayQuil and Feel Better!

Do Sick Days for Moms Exist?

What do you mean sick days aren’t included in the mom compensation package? That must have been in the fine print of my contract because nobody in their right mind signs up for that kind of craziness. Call the police because I’ve been tricked into birthing a baby boy! How bittersweet motherhood is…

(Please note I love my future football player.)

Vicks DayQuil Cold & Flu Relief offers non-drowsy relief for moms who can’t afford to lose a moment to a cold or the flu. AKA Mom’s secret weapon.

What happens when mom takes a sick day?

Chaos breaks out! Pure madness ensues. Daddy comes home from work and demands that I pick up the war zone that is our house. No joke, that happened. Men are the biggest sissies when they don’t feel well, but heavens to Betsy if we are allowed to be sissies. I’m sure most women out there have watched their adult child turn into the whiniest baby on the planet when they don’t feel good. So why don’t moms get the same sick day courtesy? The mom union should consider negotiating our contracts to include sick days and nap times.

Vicks DayQuil Cold & Flu Relief helps ease five symptoms of a cold – aches, fever, sore throat, stuffy head and cough. You know, all of the things that are intensified by a screaming child.

The sick day solution

My sick day solution is to hire a babysitter or enlist outside help. What do you mean that isn’t a feasible plan? I thought I was a genius! It’s a good thing I have a my second option, let your little terror wreck the house while you rest a little bit. We’ve all laid on the floor as we attempted to catch those pesky zzzz’s. Don’t you hate when those slippery suckers get away from you? That’s the worst!

A sick mom’s saving grace is a simple dose of Vicks DayQuil or Vicks NyQuil. I’m not even joking. You can ask Michael how fussy I am about the medicine I take! I will suffer before I take anything I’m not familiar with, or that will make me drowsy to the point of not being able to catch my terror doing something bad. Screaming “NOOOOO” with a scratchy throat is less than desirable and not nearly as effective. I know you know what I’m talking about. ?
