  • I think their mommies spoiled them rotten when they were sick little kids. That's the only thing i can think of. I agree are the biggest babies when they are sick. Mommies ALWAYS have to keep working no matter if we are sick....our job never ends!

  • My hubby isn't like that. He can be sick as a dog and never complain, still go to work, and be totally pleasant to be around. I think that some men see how much attention their wives give sick children and when they feel bad, they want a little bit of the same thing. I sometimes get annoyed that my husband won't let me baby him like that when he feels bad.

  • Hah!! I have been going through this myself. This damn cold has been going for about a week and a half now and I am soooo ready for it to be over!! I pointed out to him that our kids have the same exact symptoms he does, but they are as happy and rambunctious as they always are!

  • My husband just wants to be left alone when he is sick. I consider it a gift from God.

  • hahaha, agreed! My dad was never like that, and my bro-in-law isn't either (maybe it's the marine in the both of them, lol) but seriously, whenever DH gets the sniffles, prepare for the pity party to begin, lol. When we first started dating I would nurse him back to health, but now, with a 17 month old and a full time job, I don't have time to wipe your snotty nose too, lol
