kid talk about being sick

I have been slacking with my blog the past few days. It is hard if both of the kids are sick. Lastnight, my son was telling me that its really hard if somebody is sick in the family…

i: why do u say so?

son: because u and dad doesnt have enough sleep trying to take care of both baby and i and could be both cranky…

i: (was silent for awhile before saying) i know..its really hard if somebody is sick…thats why i told you that you have to be healthy all the time…

son: i know i know but if your sick or having a fever, it means your body is fighting the bad germs in the body…its reminding us to be healthy and to always sleep better…sometimes we forget…being sick is also good mom…

i: you are right but as much as possible..we need to be healthy all the time..if we get sick..we have to spend money to pay bills, we have to spend time getting better to the point that you miss some of your activities…

son: right! you cant hug baby too coz she might get sick as well…its really hard especially since she is so cute…

i: at least now, you and baby  are now getting better…

son: yeah! we are reminded what it feels to be healthy again…i guess, we get sick to remind us to make our body rest and have a break from all the play, work and learning we do everyday….

  1. The importance of REST. This is a powerful comment. We are meant to lead balanced lives with work, play and REST in equal portions. Thank you for blog which is always insightful. Take care of yourself as well as the little ones. Cheers!

    1. thanks faye…as usual u make insightful comments…u make great comments to the point that u pause and say, thats right, i never thought of that…
      on the other hand, i do agree with u that we need balance…people seemed to forget that the body need to rest…
