The past few weeks have been tough in this house.
I travelled out of state a few weeks ago, and the morning I left RoRo woke up with a terrible cough. I was hoping it was just allergies, or the change in seasons. Unfortunately it was the beginning of a terrible cold, and soon it was passed onto our entire household.
In a house like ours, once somebody gets sick we all get sick. Our littlest boys share everything, no matter how much handwashing and disinfectant is used the fact of the matter is this; If one of them gets sick it’s inevitable the other one will too. Once they’re sick it’s highly likely I will be too. If I’m sick then so is Big G, and once it’s gone that far the older kids are sick as well.
So for the past two and a half weeks we’ve all been battling the cooties or whatever it was. It started with a cough that never let up and was the last thing any of us could shake. Head cold, slight fever, loss of appetite. I didn’t even want my coffee!
I didn’t even have a voice for about 5 days, and once it came back I sounded like a man. I’m still getting over that part. These boys though, were so pitiful. They didn’t have much of an appetite and although they were hungry it hurt to eat because their poor throats were so sore. Thankfully, since I’m a Popsicle® Ambassador, I always have some Popsicle‘s on hand. These things were seriously a life saver during this time, the boys would just lay on the couch and suck on a Popsicle® to soothe their little throats.
