  • As much as I hate being sick, I'd rather be sick than to see any of my kids suffering.

  • I would definitely rather be sick myself. I'm with you, dealing with other people's vomit is not pleasant, and it is no fun seeing your kids suffer especially when they're little and can't tell you what's wrong.

  • Oh I would much rather be sick than have DD sick! And not just because she's feeling bad, as terrible as that makes me sound. I just have a hard time dealing with nasal drainage and the like. Vomit, poop, etc. don't bother me at all. Boogers and stuff make me want to hurl even thinking about them, though. But really, I just can't stand it when she feels bad. I end up just holding her while she whines or cries and I try not to cry. It absolutely breaks my heart.

  • this is gonna sound so mean..but..i would rather my daughter be sick..when she is sick, she is sooo snuggly, shes so needy, shes so loving!! and at least i would be fine to take care of her...when i am sick, she gets soo scared! i dont know why..but she honestly gets scared shitless!! she will not even look at me if i am sick, she wont come near me, nothing!! (shes 6yrs old) she wont even sit on the same couch as me, and if i look at her, she turns her back to me..i was actually sick on jan 3rd (puking all day) and thats what i went thru, and it SUCKED! my mom had to come over to take care of my daughter, cuz she wanted nothing to do with yaaaa..i will choose to have her sick, over me!!
