There's Nothing Meaner...

...than sick kids during holidays. How cruel is it that my five year old son is suffering a rotten, sinusy head cold a mere three days before Christmas? The poor kid has his nose running off his face. It's so bad that he's willingly blowing his nose, something we normally badger him to do when he starts snuffling. His breath his horrid.

I'm wondering whether he'll be able to handle his last half day of school before Christmas break or if I'll have to keep him at home. Selfish critter that I am, I am tempted to send him to school so I can handle a few last-minute tasks.

Even worse is that I can see Precious Daughter is right behind him. She's starting out with the same look in the eye that he had a few days ago, and her breath is bad enough to peel paint.

On the bright side, bedtime on the 24th might be pretty easy.

I know what you mean DD was running a temp of 102 for the first night of Hanukkah. She's the third and last to get it, unless of course DH or I do. It didn't stop her from tearing the wrapping paper off in record time. E

Good to know the Creeping Crud is not restricted to the southern half of the country. Boogs and I went thru it together over Thanksgiving.
