It's all about snot

Pin It
It is Sunday morning and I am NOT going to church. Instead I am going to stay home with my THREE sick children. Aiden is still not feeling well and if we go to church he will get all excited and run around in the gym and have yet another asthma attack. Owen started coughing yesterday and woke up several times in the night. I am hoping he doesn't get worse. Olivia is not doing well at all... and yet she is surprisingly lovely despite the snot constantly dripping down her face and her having to pause her activities to cough out a lung.

Last night was a very long night.

I really miss Infant Tylenol Cold. I don't approve of it being banned in Canada at all. Clearly the people who banned it do not have sick children in their homes. Sheesh.

I slathered Olivia with Vicks vapo-rub and put a humidifier in the room and gave her regular infant tylenol for her fever. We made it through the night... but it was rough.

Why is it that kids hate getting their nose wiped? Why would they rather have goo dripping constantly? And why is it that symptoms always get worse at night?

On the up side we got a new movie to help entertain the sick troops- "Meet the Robinsons" and gosh is it enjoyable! I am actually not minding watching it OVER AND OVER again. It even has a pretty decent sound track. I am always impressed with kids movies that are enjoyable for parents too- without having content that teaches my sons bad things. So three cheers for family friendly movies.

I am sorry to hear that your kids are sick again. Even though I only have one child (at the moment) it is very hard when he gets sick. He is just getting over the same thing in your house. I will keep you in my prayers!

I know what you mean about the Tylenol Cough&Cold Medicine being banned! It's just evil. We shouldn't have to suffer because others couldn't take the time to actually read the direction or call a doctor about their kid's health. That's just laziness and bad parenting, and now the rest of us have to suffer through it! NOT FAIR!!!!!!!

Anyways, that's my rant...
