That parenting thing, where my baby catches every possible cold virus from his daycare-mates and cousins? And passes it on to me, so I can be floored by a cold at the same time as I'm trying to help Mike take care of him? I'm totally ready to MOVE ON FROM THAT.

Charlie has developed Guilt Tripping and Sneakiness! All in the course of a single cold.

C: (rubs face and eyes. Rub rub rub)
M: oh, no, your face is all red! Say goodbye to your hand for now (tucks hand into jammies, puts ointment on face).
C: (pushes hand thru jammy fabric toward mouth) Mom, I'm trying to suck my fingers! I need to soothe myself! No, (pwah!) I scorn your pacifier, I should be sucking on my hand! Cmon pleeeze? Waah! (Plaintive look) waah.Mean mommy.*
M: oh, ok, you can have your hand back but no rubbing! (Returns hand to service)
C: nom nom nom! (Chews hand briefly)
M: (turns back)
C: rub rub rub! Rub rub!

*ok strictly speaking he didn't say all this, but it was clearly implied

Today, thanks to tropical-fruit-flavored Cold-Eze, I am mildly sick with a cold. I never, ever have a mild head cold. I always have a brush-with-death type of thing. My mouth hurts from the dang sugar and they have a bit of a foul taste under all the sugar, but they are MAGIC.

Tomorrow: Driving to Pittsburgh through flooded northwestern Indiana. Oy.

Gone til Tuesday...have a nice weekend, everyone.

I feel like I'm coming down with a cold. Oh please oh please be allergies! We're going out of town Thursday come heck or high water, and I will feel like UTTER CRUD if I have to take a 10-hour road trip when I'm sick.

Charlie had a sniffly nose for a couple of days, but he has a GREAT immune system so has shaken it off. My immune system totally sucks, so I am screwed, screwed, screwed.
