  • If you can call your parents then call them. If you can't call then keep doing what you are doing. That is what I do if I am sick and dh is at work. DH and I were both up the other night along with two of our kids with the stomach flu, meaning all four of us had it at the same time. Not fun at all. At least our middle child slept through it all and never got it. Hope you feel better soon!

  • call your parents and have them watch your LO so she doesnt get sick and you can get plenty of rest

  • Life goes on.... I was totally on my own with two. You just do what you gotta do.

    Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

  • I have a husband but stay at home with my kids and I still don't get sick days! Your daughter will be fine, hang in there and drink plenty of water! There are not many sick days for moms!

  • Your parents live around the corner but can't come get her because it is too cold out? What are they? Chihuahuas? That is ridiculous.
