It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

The days are getting shorter, the nights longer, there is a nip in the air, and every kid in preschool is a walking experiment in infectious illnesses.

He has a small cough and a little bit of a runny nose. My chest fills like it is full of Cream of Wheat, and dental surgery may be less painful than the coughing I was doing last night.

At least it isn't a head cold.

Only 5 more months till the peak of the sharing season has passed.

Hope it's not pertussis, or you may still be coughing in 5 months.

Uh, Dad? It doesn't sound to me like you two are sharing the same thing at all. As parents we often do that - if she has, then I have. I'd guess not says the Nan of 10 and the Mom of 4 and numerous foster kids who are still in my life. Trust me on this! Mr. Strong Man can be down a llloooongggg time for being brave. Best of luck to you this next five months!

OOPS! I'm Nana (see that ending "a" there?) to 10. Should have done a preview, huh? Take care of yourself.

Good points all, but it was nothing a little NyQuil could supress.
