The Ailing Male

What is worse than a sick man?
Nothing.
I don't know what it is about the male species...but, if they get sick...watch out!
Because, the world may be coming to an end.
And.
I have learned this week...they learn this behavior young.

My sweet boy has been sick. He is good now.
But.
I had 10 long days.
(Grant it....I'm sure they were no picnic for him either.)
Being that he is my baby, my heart bleeds a little more.
But, after so many days of playing the role as nurse maid and being at his beckon call...
Well, I'd had it.
I finally had to say to him, "I know you don't feel good. I know this isn't fun. But, you have to be nice to me and respect me. I have done everything I can to help you. It's time to suck it up."
He looked up at me with those baby blues and said, "I'm sorry."
Ok. Well. Forget what I said...what else does this little angel boy need?
