It's in the air

Mommy's and daddy's out there... it's that time of year again. The weather is shifting to cold, and the kids are coming down with everything imaginable!

Sniffles, loss of appetite, vicious coughs, fever and consequently… VERY grouchy children. Iman had been doing really well this year, in fact, we got through a really long stretch without illness (thank God). But no one can escape this weather.

You should go back and read my post last year about how people with children see this weather change in comparison to people without.

And now… we’re also victim to the weather woes. Iman has had a horrible cough lately, and we’ve been trying this excellent honey remedy. Usually it works like a charm on her, and she’s better in a couple of days. But this new cough has stuck around for the past 5 days, and there’s no sign of letting up. Today is our turn at the doctor’s office. But no matter how many self diagnosis you do at home, it’s always scary to walk into that office.

I’m particularly bumming today because when I dropped Iman off at day care she had those big puppy eyes again. She kept saying she wanted to stay with mommy. Then when she knew she wasn’t going to win this battle, she asked “One more huggy?” I gave her the hug, but she wouldn’t let go, and then I asked her “what are you doing?” she replied… “I’m feeling better.”

That kid is so adorable. Hope she feels well again very soon!

I guess she figured out her own honey remedy, eh?

Tell her Uncle D says he hopes she gets better soon.
