No, no, no, no, no!

We have a snotty, congested little Monkey. It started Sunday evening after our day o’ fun and by Monday night he was sounding like a 50 year old man with a two pack a day habit. Hoarse voice, hacking cough. Nice. Then the nose started to run. OMG, we just may drown in the river of snot!

I calmly chugged a quart of orange juice, sprayed myself head to toe with Lysol and ran shrieking every time Monkey asked for “a hug!”1 We can handle this! No big deal!

So whyyyyyyy is my face hot? Whyyyyyy do I have this incessant, cough that is building in both frequency and ferocity?

I guess maybe I should have run…or wrapped myself in Saran Wrap, surely that would have worked *sigh*

  1. No, I did not really deny my boy hugs OR kisses! I just carried bleach wipes and scrubbed the drying snot off my cheeks regularly! []

    I was just getting ready to write: I don’t like the fact that you are sicky poo house, I like the fact that I’m not alone in my addiction to disinfecting. The 5 year old neighbor asked me “Mrs. Lupinetti, why do you always make me wash my hands when i come to your house. ” My response, because you go to school and you just got off the bus.” She thinks I’m nuts! BTW, I thought of you tonight when my Dad called and told me the equipment truck has headed to Fort Myers..lol!

    Sorry Amy! The football coach at my HS wore a shirt that said “Snot Bubbles” to at least one game…I think of him every time my son has a cold.

    Hey…the germs were fairly distributed. Nathan has a fever today and it was going to be my first full week of school for him since December!!! If it’s not blizzard, it had to be something, right? And I am missing my weekly mom group…ugh!
