Boogers and Bicycles

Break out the humidifiers!

My baby girl has caught a nasty cold. Actually, the only person in my house that isn't sick right now is me! (I am also the only one not asleep).

Both of my boys have had coughs for a while now... the kind that just seems to linger. Then at the beginning of the week, Audrey got a stuffy, yucky nose.

Now the cold has moved to her lungs. She is getting a little raspy, and I hope we are not headed for croup! She was so tired this afternoon that I put her down for a nap and she fell asleep in no time. Poor girl.

This evening I spent time in a hot shower with Audrey and then took her out into the cooler night air. That seemed to help a bit, so then I put her back to bed with her humidifier. Now I am down in the basement, cooling off.

As if having all three kids sick wasn't enough, tonight Honey Daddy is not feeling well. Icky throat, stuffy head, chills... oh great! How does he get sick, when I am the one who has been wiping noses all week? Go figure. I guess on the bright side, right now I still feel fine (knock on wood!).

In other good news, Jonah learned to ride his bike without training wheels today! Hooray!

He was SO ready for the training wheels to come off. I was impressed with how quickly he mastered riding without the extra wheels. Obviously my boys are not feeling too sick anymore. They are just sick of coughing.

Well, I guess I had better get to bed so I don't get sick too!
