  • My husband helps me, if he doesn't have to work, but mostly me. Sick or not, I drag myself out of bed to take care of them.

  • Their dad, my hubby, does. Also my oldest is 12 and is a great help in those situations.

  • I have to do it, unless I'm on my death bed or in the hospital, it's all on me 24/7

  • The only times that I have been unable to care for the kids I was throwing up like crazy and so dizzy or weak I couldn't get to the bathroom myself. And those times my hubby was actually home from work.

    Any other time, no matter how sick, it's just me at home. On the really bad days, I get a trash can and lay on the couch. I turn the tv on and let the kids watch movies all day! When I was on bedrest my hubby put a cooler and microwave in the basement. Each morning I would head down to the couch, he would bring the kids down, and fill the fridge with lunch foods and snacks for us. Then off to work he would go!

    Sometimes my mom will come help out - but on my worst days it's just been me!

  • My husband did.

    When our son was growing up and I was sick. My husband would take off from work to stay home and take care of me, the kiddo, the house and anything/everything else that needed to be done..

    My husband still does that. Our only is grown and gone. But if I'm sick, my husband still takes off work and stays home to take care of me.
