Aaah! The wonderful noises in my house

*Sneeze*

*Cough*

*Sniffle*

*Moan*

*Snore*



My house currently contains:



1 - Perfectly well 10 year old (albeit bossy and mean to her sister)

1 - Exhausted Daddy who only got 2 hours of sleep last night

3 - Snotty McSnotnoses



It's time once again to play "pass around the cold" in my domicile...We have this game so down pat, it only takes 12 hours for the germs to jump from person to person. Emmy is patient 0 - She started coughing, sneezing, snotting 2 days ago. Today she added wheezing back into her repertoire. I made my monthly contribution to the Pediatrician's kids college fund and she's back on steroids...anything is better than going back to the hospital. Little man started sneezing, coughing, and snotting last night which made for such a restful sleep!! (sarcasm very much intended). And now me...I woke up this morning with a lovely head cold.



So, I don't have a lot to write about tonight because it isn't easy to type and blow simultaneously. And this look just isn't good (however it does work well)





Nyquil here I come!!

Poor you!!

Missy said...

Oh No!!! I am telling you these colds are everywhere. We are finally well so we are staying in!!!
Poor thing - I hope you get better. I suggest you take a day off, drink some hot cocoa & eat a cookie or 2. That should help!

I hope you all get to feeling better soon! We've all passed around the cold in our house & I'm hoping it's gone for good!

Z's Mom said...

Oh man...I feel for you!!! Yes, I'm a fan of shoving the puffs up my nose too!

Another thing I learned this year, but haven't had to try yet....is this....

Put Vicks vapor rub on the bottoms of your feet and then put socks on. Your feet absorb the menthol.....its supposed to help you quit coughing.....some people swear by it! Maybe it'll help Little Man get some much needed rest!

JANE said...

Oh what a uh.....lovely picture!
I heard the Vicks on the feet worked also. Tell us if you try it!
