Slimed

Our house has been invaded by those horrible anthropomorphic snot creatures from the cold medicine commercial. Daddy, Mommy and Baby Snot Creature have all taken up residence in Daddy, Mommy and Baby Evan and are settling in for an extended stay. If only I could remember what the commercial was actually FOR I could go buy some of it and maybe we would feel better.

So far the cough is my only symptom but E claims he also has an overwhelming sense of ickiness and the baby is a little bit grumpy (although he’d feel a lot better if he would just let me WIPE HIS NOSE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD). Otherwise, no fevers, no pains, no need to see a pediatrician, no idea when it will go away. We’re trapped in a miserable purgatory of being too sick to go to group activities¬† where we could possible contaminate people but nowhere near sick enough to lie around sleeping all day. I’m making an effort to still make it to Stroller Strides as much as possible, just because it breaks up the monotony of 14 straight hours of snotty baby care, but today we were supposed to RUN and running is just not possible when you have to stop and cough up a lung every few feet.

I’m going to feel like an idiot when I realize in a month we aren’t sick, we just have allergies and this self imposed quarantine was pointless. But I would feel even worse if one of the littler babies ended up with RSV because I couldn’t handle playing with my kid at home for a few days. Which I will definitely do as soon as I can find him under all that snot.

    I’m slimy too… Hope you guys feel better soon!

  2. Ugh, Mucinex is the stuff with those horrible snot monsters. I hate that commercial only slightly less than I hate the Kleenex “Get Mommed” commercials.

    When Ivy was sick (which ended up being RSV actually) before the fever when she was just stuffy I was using Vick’s Baby Rub. Good stuff and it seemed to calm her down a bit. You know, until the fever wheezing and mucus spewing.

    Hope it’s just allergies – since the weather got nice I’ve noticed a weird sinus thing happening too. Allergies!
