I'm Sick, could you get me some Depends?

I'm going to share something with all of you. You may find it gross. You may find it inappropriate. You may find it funny. If you've had children, you will probably find it familiar.

I'm sick right. Came home early from work sick. Don't want to go into work tomorrow sick. Raw, red nose sick. Two tissue boxes a day sick. You get the point. I hate being sick. I can't taste anything. I don't want to move off the couch. The kids want my attention. The husband wants my attention. I'd like to get up and clean the kitchen because it bothers me that it's messy. I just don't feel like doing ANYTHING!

So, we're sitting on the couch tonight after finishing some pizza and I'm having a sneezing attack. One after another leading up to the BIG one. I always seem to have a HUGE sneeze that finishes out the attack. I have the tissue at the ready and AHCHOO! The big one came and showed me that even now, almost nine months later, my bladder is pretty much still shot. I immediately jumped up afraid that I was going to look like the boy after an accident or not making it to the potty on time. Luckily, I didn't. I came back from the bathroom and of course my husband was quite curious as to why I furiously jumped up and ran out of the living room. Me, being the honest person I am told him, "I just peed when I sneezed." And his reaction? Laughter. My gut reaction was to punch him in the head. I did not do that. Instead I looked at him, told him to shut up and said, "You have two kids and see how your bladder does!" He kept laughing.

My two kids are currently sitting on their father bouncing up and down and laughing hysterically. How could that not make me smile? I may be sick and crotchety and tired but the two things that have given me bladder incontinence are currently making me laugh...and pee myself. I am a mom.

The picture is really bad because I took it with my cell but it was too cute not to share!

Yay! I'm not the only one! I always thought it was the ladies who had natural deliveries that had issues, but I had a c-section and it happens to me once in awhile, too. It must be all the bladder-kicking my breech twins did :)

Yes! I have. I too told my husband... and he too laughed out loud. Men!!!!

Have fun at home.
