Brace Yourselves, Sick Just Got Real

 This post is sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare

Facebook recently reminded me of something I said in an old post that I think still holds true. “Motherhood means going to bed at midnight. Being woken up at 3am to nurse a tummy ache. Going back to bed at 5, and waking up at 7am to start the day…”


Motherhood has many challenges, but nothing is more challenging for a mom than taking care of a sick child. Between the over-packed schedules and playdates, sticky messes and scraped knees, late nights and early morning wakeup calls, there’s barely enough of me to make it through the day. And then put a sick kid in the mix, well that's when things really hit the fan! Nothing is worse than seeing your child suffer or turn lethargic and zombie-like. I sometimes wish all moms could come with a magic wand that can make any ailments disappear. But let’s be real – I would also want it so it could also save me from some not-so-pleasant situations.

I remember one particular night my daughter had a fever and stomach flu and decided to reenact a grotesque scene from The Exorcist. You know the one. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination, but let’s just say I had a lot of cleaning up to do afterwards. It was one of those night you quickly knew, Sick Just Got Real.

As distressing as that was, moms know that sometimes they’ll be sneezed on, coughed at, or in my case, puked on, and we simply don’t care. We’ll be there to snuggle with them, rub their bellies, and make them feel better, because at the end of the day taking care of child is the most important job we’ll ever have.

As part of their ‘Sick just got real’ ™ campaign the pediatric brands of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare have released a funny but very relatable video depicting a small glimpse of what moms may feel and experience when their child is under the weather. Watch it below and tell me you can’t relate?
