Even Hilary Duff can’t escape the mom guilt while sick in bed.

“I’m super sick – I think I have strep throat – and I’m in bed…I’m getting an IV to hopefully feel better,” she posted to her Instagram Story. “As a parent, why does it feel so horrible to be sick? Like, the guilt of being in bed.”

“There’s obviously times when I’ve had to be with my kids all day long, sick and feeling horrible, with no help,” she continued. “But today, I have help and I should be resting and the guilt is crazy.”

Fans, though, were excited to hear that she was planning on using the rest time to catch up on Lizzie McGuire, just in time for the recently announced reboot.

“I’m going to take this opportunity to watch Lizzie McGuire, like, start to finish,” she said. “I’m going to do all my research and get it all fresh in my mind.”
