He Did What!? Wednesday - By Slightly More Depth Than A Teaspoon

Man Flu - By Slightly More Depth Than A Teaspoon

When I was 'heavy with child' (dontcha just love that expression?) with my daughter, my darling husband was slightly inattentive. He had rudely decided to get a cold. So it follows that when I went into labour he was less than present.

I remember rolling around on the birthing ball when things were starting feeling more worried about him than me!

In the end my Mum came up and we sent him to the doctor. He proceeded to come back with antibiotics for tonsillitis- the nerve!

So during the entire birthing experience he was pretty absent. Instead my Mum and sister helped me through while he lay 'helping' on the couch nearby. He did manage to pull himself together and drag his ill, disease-ridden body to my bedside when the baby was actually born..... and then the midwife made him wear a mask when he first held our daughter (I have a feeling she was less than sympathetic).

Number two is on its way and due in December and he is under strict instructions to be as healthy as a horse!

I should note: He really is a fantastic husband and Dad- but is, of course, no match for man-flu!

She's a stay at home mama to 1.5 children and rates that as far more difficult than looking after 16 all day at a child care centre like she used to.

She blogs and tweets late at night and uses it as an excuse to avoid doing the laundry and scrubbing the toilet.

  1. I can SO relate to this! my husband has a knacked for spraining his ankle when we have to move house or clean for an inspection or actually have a chance to go out to dinner together, you know, without four children in tow!

  2. Cursed man flu - it always strikes at the least opportune times! Nice photo though :)
    And good on your mother and sister for stepping up. I don't think mine would be that brave!

  3. Funnily enough it actually turned out well- I wouldn't have planned it, but it worked. Mum was good but my sister is a nurse and she was just fantastic!
