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*
- 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! [↩]
