My youngest has been fighting a cold over the past several days. Yesterday it seems the misery factor went up significantly. She got up looking positively miserable - I asked if she had been crying, and she said, "No...I'm just blowing my nose so much it's making my eyes water!" Poor baby! Amazing how when are kids are sick we want to do anything possible to make it better. Today, I am grateful for the soft kleenex we buy - not the rough stuff that might as well be newspaper or sandpaper. I know when I'm sick and my skin is raw, it is one of the best things ever!
“A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.” Ogden Nash
