dealing with the flu and no support?

Posted by   + Show Post
I have the flu and have no one I can call to help out with my youngest kids since DH is not home. How do you deal with this? I've been trying to have snuggle time all day so I can rest on the couch but at 2 & 3 they can't do that for long. They do play pretty well in their rooms together but without someone else here sleeping is not an option.

LOL

I set out juice boxes and pop tarts then pass out on the couch and hope for the best.

 What everyone else said pretty much, you make it work. I have a 5 month old who freaks out if Im not holding her or actively playing with her, but thats another battle on its own. And a 3 year old who is pretty good with entertaining herself and becomes ecstatic if I put on a fairy movie.

Movies and easy snacks. Lay on the couch. That's all you can do.

Nap when they do. Do movies in bed and keep them in an area where they can't get hurt it destroy too much if you do doze off with done of their toys.

Thanks! I know I have to suck it up but I didn't know if anyone else had any thing else I could possibly do to get rest while the kids were awake.
