Ladies and Gents...we have a cold.

There has been snuffling, wiping, drippling, choking, coughing, moaning and smearing going on. And that's just Finn.
Until yesterday.
Now we have 2 kids with miserableness.
Finn has tried to remain chipper..with a very chapped little snot-runner..Wrenny, well, she is not too happy. After a full day of coping with a very demanding almost 2 year old "no-monster" yesterday, I have given in to "fake parenting" and provided a movie before naptime.
And a movie after naptime.
I told two other moms this on the phone today.
They said "that's what sick days are for".
I agree. I listen to the voices of my esteemed collueges.
And so, I have become the woman with the clicker.
And I for one, can live with that.
For a day, anyways.

Yuck! don't feel bad about using movies to help Finn through his miserable day. In the 19th cent. they gave babies opium to keep them quiet - I'm sure Thomas the Tank Engine is better for him!
Hope you are all feeling better soon!

lol (a knowing laugh--in regards to the movie watching)

I hope you all get better soon....make sure you take care of yourself so you don't get it.

Hmmm, opium. Not a bad idea. ;)
