and...shit.

My pixie is sick.  Like, hacking/sneezing/snorting/running a fever sick.  Having weird bad dreams sick. 

Right now, she's sitting on the couch, watching Peter Pan and eating an apple.  I strongly doubt she's going to be willing to do more than graze, since her sinuses are draining.

Guess we won't be finishing up the Christmas season tomorrow with a visit to my family after all.

  1. I'm sorry your child is sick. But at least it's Christmas vacation, when you can stay home with her and take care of her. Having mom to tend to her is very comforting and reassuring for children.

    1. She's been getting lots of snuggles, and lots of love from Mommy and Daddy (until she throws a tantrum--then she gets sent to her room). And now...the imp is coming down with it, too.

  2. This is one of those years, when the creeping cruds have a tenacity, with long term effects involving sputum and sounds that resemble the bray of a donkey.

    Quaifenesin has been my savior over the last few weeks. That, an antihistamine and plenty of liquids. All the medications are generic and cost me less than $10.

    1. I've got some multi-symptom syrup that includes guaifenesin, but the pixie is too young for it, and I can't get the imp to take it--not that I blame him; that shit's nasty.
