The ugly part about being a stay at home dad

Wife is on a business trip. Kids wake up this morning and are both sick. Not a good combination. Honestly, I can’t think of a worse scenario. Parents hate it when their kids are ill. I’m certainly no different. I feel helpless. They look pathetic. All I can do is give them the medicine they need, blankets and pillows and an extra hug here and there. But, I’m no substitute for a mom. I don’t have that maternal nurturing that my wife is naturally blessed with as well as that gentle touch and soft voice they seem to need at a time like this. All I can do is work with what I’m given.

Good thing I have some chicken noodle soup in the pantry. It’s not a replacement for their mom but then again, nothing is.

Back later…
