The True Tragedy of Mommy's Illness

I have a terrible head cold. I can't breathe, yet my nose is almost constantly running. I can't taste anything and often wind up gasping for breath after sipping some water. My throat hurts a little and my eyes itch some (although that could be from being tired). And I keep coughing and sneezing. That's why I didn't blog yesterday. I felt terrible. I'm still not well today, but I feel a little bit better.

The true tragedy of my illness though, is that I can barely smell. This resulted in both Finn and Deacon having big blow-outs in their diapers and me not knowing because I couldn't smell it. Which led to big surprises for us when we went to change their diapers before naptime today. Ahh the joys of parenthood.

But enough of that. Yesterday, Josh came home from work, and after the boys got up from naps, they did this:

Isn't Daddy clever? It's been a great source of amusement for the boys. We even had Finn in there yesterday (for about 2 minutes). Now if we could just find a better place to keep it.

What a great idea! I hope you start feeling better soon.

When your nose is stuffed up but running, it could very well be swollen inside. Try an inflammation reducer like Tylenol.
The castle is totally cool. What'd you get in a box that big??
Send the boys over on Mon if you need a break. I'm sure they know the way :-)
