I may not make it through the night...

Because things have been going well of late, it was inevitable that I'd get sick.

I am extremely brave and stoic when I'm ill. I battle on and don't complain. I get the job done and keep my suffering and my germs to myself.  My parenting skills are exemplary at times like this, and frankly it was simply an unfortunate oversight that I missed out on Wife And Mother Of The Year again this year.

Here are a few examples of my patience and leadership in the last... well four hours or so;

  • Dear God don't let Playschool end
  • No we are not listening to the sodding Wiggles again, no I do not have any special treats, if you don't stop yelling I'll throw the Wiggles out the car window and they'll get squashed.
  • My hair hurts
  • My goodbumps hurts
  • Aaaaachoo
  • Stop it
  • Be quiet
  • Can't you see I'm ill?
  • Can't you see I'm driving?
  • I am not mean.
  • My nose won't stop running.
  • I'm cranky because I've taken too many cold and flu tablets
  • LEAVE THE DOG ALONE 
  • Just feed it to the Dog
  • DONT FEED THAT TO THE DOG
  • Does it feel like nits?
  • What itches?
  • No you cannot get nits there.
  • I don't know why, but you can't.
  • No, I don't want to look.
  • Yes we can have a Chinese take-away
  • No we cannot have prawn chips
  • I AM NOT MEAN.
  • I've run out of tissues
  • Is it just me or is everyone else flushed and shivering
  • No I can't get you a hot chocolate or a muffin with golden syrup
  • I wish someone would get me a muffin with golden syrup
  • NO, I cannot get you a muffin when I get one
  • I AM NOT MEAN
  • Can't you see I'm ill
  • I can feel my tonsils throbbing
  • Please, for the love of God, stop bickering
  • NO WE ARE NOT HAVING PRAWN CHIPS
  • My throat hurts
  • My nose hurts
  • Aaaachooo.
  • You want to perform Dingle Dangle Scarecrow AGAIN??
  • Let's see what's on ABC2 instead.
  • DONT THROW THAT.
  • Give that here.
  • RIGHT I'm taking it away.
  • That was an excellent rendition of Dingle Dangle Scarecrow
  • LOOK, its In the Night Garden.
  • Please watch television.
  • Go and see if Daddy's home yet
  • LEAVE YOUR SISTER ALONE.
I may or may not make it through the night.

sigh.
