The Nasty Cold

I took this picture last week. We have gotten our yearly cold. It started off with Ainsley coughing throughout the night, which keeps me up since I am the lightest sleeper in the whole wide world it seems! Next came the runny noses and spreading of germs, which led to Ellie wasting using a whole box of Kleenexes in one day (how do you teach you kid to reuse a Kleenex, yet alone use one?)

I thought I was almost safe from the nasty thing, then it came. It started with a sore throat and a cough, then came the loss of voice (laryngitis) and the hacking cough (bronchitis), then the worst headache and the worst cough and congestion (sinus infection) of my life, I thought. Why does it seem that I got the worst of it? I thought mothers weren't supposed to get sick, I thought that I was the adult with the immune system. I used to NEVER get sick, not until I had kids. I was even around kids ALL the time, I was a teacher and church nursery volunteer. Why when the days come when it is almost impossible to rest, do I have the worst immune system?

Ok, enough complaining. I thought I would share my nasty thoughts with you and hopefully not this nasty cold.

Well if it is like my house, you got sick because your kids think mommy's glass is the community drinking glass.
