All day yesterday, I was wondering why our little girlie was so very fussy and clingy. Upon returning home, her mother asked me, “has she been this congested all day?”.
Oy, Father of the Year!
Sure enough, she coughed and sputtered all through last night. She had too many friends this weekend, and indulged in too many fingers. So now she’s got herself a nice cold, and a snotty nose, lip, and chin to show for it. Fortunately, she’s learned to mouth-breath recently, and even more fortunately, we had already scheduled her six-month pediatrician visit for today, so we now know that her ears are ok. But her little eyes are all puffy, and she wakes up with the most pitiful gasp and cough that you ever did hear. Poor kid.
