Hello everybody. I hope you guys are well.
I currently have two cute, snot faces at home.
Here we go again, and again, and yup, again. My oldest is miserable because she’s missing school and her nose and upper lip are red and swollen from blowing and wiping away boogers. Fun times! When will this insanity end? We’ve been sick before, but this is ridiculous. We’ve even been to the pediatrician twice! I’m giving medicine every four hours, applying Vick’s vapor rub, going through numerous tissue boxes, and the current phrase being declared in the house every ten minutes is, “I have boogies!”
I’m also very conflicted with the fact that I’m keeping her home from school. I hate that she’s missing her lessons, but at the same time I don’t want her to be miserable and spreading germs in her class. She knows how to fully blow and wipe her nose, but as soon as she steps into school she starts doing things differently like blowing softy into the tissue and constantly wiping at her nose, hence why when I went to pick her up yesterday (mind you she didn’t leave the house with a runny nose in the morning and I was shocked to see how she looked in the afternoon) her nose and upper lip were RAW. Today, she woke up the same way and I thought it best to let her clear out as much boogies as she can at home. It’s amazing how much keeps coming out and I can’t see the light at the end of the snot tunnel. How much can there be left?
My youngest is faring better. She doesn’t let a stuffed up or runny nose stop her from playing, torturing her sister, ignoring my demands to stop making a mess, or sleeping. She’s currently walking around the house with her magnifying glass telling me that she’s looking for dinosaur footprints. I just want to scoop her up and give her a thousand kisses, but I don’t want to get sick again, or in my case, again!!
Here’s hoping that I can QUIT writing about us being sick (please!) and banish all yucky snot away from my household.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
