Everyone in my house has been sick for weeks.
Nothing more serious than colds, but the lingering cough has become beyond annoying.
Poor Lucas has suffered the longest and I feel terrible for him. His sleep is disrupted and play time hindered.
His life would greatly improve if he could only blow his tiny little nose.
We run a humidifier at night and have gone through a tub of Vicks VapoRub.
Like every mother, I don’t want my son to suffer from anything. Ever. And if I could, I’d take away his cough.
I would also make sure he never had a blister, ice cream headache, pimple, paper cut, cold sore, food poisoning, heart burn, hiccups, allergies, body odor, carpal tunnel syndrome, sleepless night, heart break, skinned knee, hang nail, chafing, sprained ankle, jet lag, heat stroke, tennis elbow, crick in his neck, bruise, pink eye, dandruff, stubbed toe, sunburn, tooth ache, dislocated shoulder, cracked rib, electric shock, torn ligament, fever, sore throat, or hacking cough.
I would just settle for being able to prevent my family from passing this nasty cold back and forth and make preschool a healthy place to be rather than a cesspool of germs and ick.
I’m just saying…
