Dear Horrible Person I Become When My Husband Gets a Cold:

I don’t know where you came from or why you take over every time hubby gets a sniffle, but something’s got to change.

I know you’re busy. I know that sniffle gives you one more thing to take care of in your taking-care-of-everything schedule. But this is the guy you vowed to love “in sickness and in health,” remember?

Yeah. That.

Sure,  he acts a little like a seven-year-old when he gets a stuffy nose. And I know you had that same illness last week and still managed to get the kids to school, do grocery shopping, get your work done, clean the house, do the laundry and cook dinner.

But still. He’s your man. And he’s a good one.

It’s time to woman up, Horrible Person I Become When My Husband Gets a Cold. Be the good wife you know you can be.

You can do it!
