  • My DH can be sick as hell and still take care of the kids, cook and run errands. He doesn't play 'helpless", nor does he like to be babied.

  • Mine isn't that bad. He usually stays to himself and doesn't really whine. I get whiny but I still do what I have to do and then lay on the couch.

  • My Two year old will run around, play, and eat regular meals even when he's sick .. Unless he's REALLY sick. My husband refuses to eat, lays around, complains, and whines about being sick. A Two year old acts more mature about being sick then a 29 year old.

  • Mine never lets me know if he gets sick, just gets quiet, and I think it's because his mother never really took care of him, so he doesn't expect it. My brothers are the same way, our mother had some problems, and basically we raised ourselves. So, I think when men get sick, some of them are wanted to be treated like their mother treated them when they were little.

  • I have no idea. But, I got kinda lucky. Mine sleeps all the time when he is sick, so I just have to go in once in a while, take the temp and give him a drink!
