The sad thing about being a parent is, even if you are puking, running a fever, feeling like death, you still have to take care of your kids. There really are no days off. I have three kids, and I�ve been a father for 8 years. During that time I have been sick about a million times while caring for my children. And the sad thing is, my parenting standards go way down. I�ve said some crazy things to get the kids to leave me alone so I can just sit on the sofa and keep from throwing up.

Here are a few examples. 

Just put it in the microwave and push some buttons. It�ll get warm.

You eat food off the floor all the time. You can do it again.

I don�t know where the baby is, but she's crying, so she isn�t dead.

Even a five-year-old can figure out the plunger. 

If you ask me to make fish sticks one more time I�m going to die. Do you want daddy to die?

I don�t know where Bun-Bun is, but if you stop asking for him I�ll give you the password to my cellphone.

There is a bag of Doritos on the bottom shelf. Just eat that for dinner.

If he steals your doll again, hit him. I�m too sick to deal with this.

Stop watching me poop!

If you stop asking me for that I will give you ten dollars.

What are some of the crazy things you have said while caring for sick kids?
