Last night when I picked LP up from day care her little nose looked red and sore like she had been blowing it all day. And she let me know that she coughed all through nap time.
"Uh-oh!" I thought, "The cold has hit significant proportions!"
When it took her a long time to fall asleep thanks to all the coughing, the Hoos and I determined that I would stay home with her today. Timing was key, because usually I leave the house before the rest of my family and if she wasn't well enough to go to school and I had already left the Hoos would be stuck at home when he really needed to be at work.
Amazingly, LP slept through the night. And popped out of bed. And when the Hoos asked if she was healed she shouted, "I am healed! My nose isn't running!" She was barely even coughing. Whew!
So I made it into work two hours late, fully knowing that I may end up leaving early if the cough comes back. Oh well. At least I brought in the digital camera and can share some new photos with you.
Before you say it, yes, I realize my kiddos are very silly. And yes, those are LP's (fortunately clean) undies on AK's head...
