well, our first cold has hit . . . bummer

Ashton's first real/major cold has hit and boy, is it a doozy . . .

Chest congestion, nasal congestion, sleepless nights, restless naps, oy vey! and I'm not even Jewish - ha!

So - out comes the Baby Vicks, the eucalyptus essential oil for the: humidifier (soooo, glad we have one AND we named him Peter Penguin) and the bath; the steaming hot showers for helping to loosen the mucus (and oh! there is a lot of that happening!), AND last but not least, the vitamins! Elderberry, Garlic, Fish Oil, Alfalfa (not sure how that helps, but okay)

We also have cough syrup, Baby Tylenol & Ibuprofen on hand - just in case.

You would think that just by getting this stuff out, it would scare off the evil, evil germ that has invaded our home.

Ummm . . .



Not a chance.

So, we wait. And hope that it doesn't get any worse.

Grrr at you, Cold Season. I am definitely NOT "friending" you on Facebook, so don't even ask.
