That, my friends, is irony

and not how I intended to spend the last two days of my maternity leave… 

Sick and banned from my baby. 

As if it’s not bad enough that I’ve been hit with some kind of flu bug (aches, fever, sore throat), I’m missing out on the last two days of cuddles, snuggles and quality time with my kid before I go back to work on Wednesday. 

I do have to say that I’m lucky to have a mother-in-law who bolted across the yard when she heard I was sick and swiftly sent me to my room for a bath and bed while she and Craig took care of Baby Girl.  And I’m equally grateful to my dad for taking the afternoon off of work to sit with her for a while as well.  As miserable as I feel I’d kick myself in the ass if I got my kid sick as well.  But that means that for the last 24+ hours I haven’t been able to touch, hold or kiss my baby girl. 

And, the real kicker is that I’ve been going in for meetings for the last 3 weeks to prepare for a big presentation on Thursday and if I don’t get to feeling better soon, I won’t even BE at that presentation.  Sound like karma to anyone else?
