"Hank, how was your cough today at school, Sweetie?"
"I coughed, Mommy. A lot. And I sneezed too. There was so much snot."
He has a cold, and now Anne has it too. She sneezed all over her Puffs this morning and has now started coughing.
As a parent, I have come to LOATHE coughing. Because 1 person coughing means the entire house gets no sleep. And we know the story with sleep. I can't believe how naive I was as a child and an unmarried adult just expecting that every night when I went to bed, I'd get sleep.
Hank has been coughing the past two nights, and now I'm fearful Anne will join him.
