Last week we had a cold wandering through our family.
Each of the children took a turn with it (and the adults did too).
There was a lot of coughing and nose wiping and crying and whining and up all night long-ing. We ran out of tissues twice (always at inconvenient moments...of course). We ran out of children's cough medacine and children's ibuprofin and had to make an early morning run to the store. We snuggled on couches a lot and no one ate much. It was a rough week.
But it wasn't all bad.
Sometimes sick kidlets mean moments like this.
And somehow that makes it all worth it.
