The perils of a cough

Both of the kids have been fighting colds. You know the type. Coughs, lovely lime green, thick snot that continues to "leak" out of previously cute noses, and watery eyes that leave you wondering if they are just watering or if the poor kids are crying because they are tired of being sick......


However in the midst of this sickness Miss L made a discovery.

She was lying on the couch, head on my lap when another coughing spell hit. After it was over she turned to me and said in a pitifully cute voice...."Momma, when I cough my leg goes flying up. That's crazy!"

She had previously informed Steven and I that she would cover her mouth when she coughed, but during a "big cough" her hand just flies away. What is a girl to do? You can't argue with the science of a forceful cough.

I feel for the kids. I have the same cold they have. I guess that means I am a big kid......

I kind of glossed over this one. I'm eating breakfast while reading it. Hope she gets better soon!
