Diary Of A Bad Dad
Ihave to admit that sometimes I get sick of my children... literally. The little critters are always bringing home unwanted sniffles and tummy troubles. A new survey reckons that mums on average get sick 18 times a year and most of that can be traced directly back to their kids.
Dads suffer too although the survey also revealed that 72 per cent of women reckon they cope better with illness than their partner.
More than half of parents end up arguing because one of them battles on when they are ill while the other stops and needs to be looked after (the bells are ringing so hard inside my head that I think I might have to go and lie down for a bit!).
The survey helpfully adds some advice for avoiding getting ill although it doesn’t include Mrs T’s top tip which is to pull the duvet off me, put her face in mine and yell ‘man up!’
She can talk (shout) with her 18 illnesses a year. I’m only poorly once a year... it starts in October and I’m fully recovered by the end of March!
