Noah and Emily are both coughing today.
Emily did okay after she finally went to sleep last night. She had a hard time going to sleep, but did not wake up during the night. She went to school today, but coughed a lot and told her teacher that her throat hurt last night. She told me last night that her throat did not hurt so I don’t know. I got her some different cough/cold medicine and some cough drops for tomorrow. They are strawberry flavored so she seemed excited about that.
Noah did not have very many smiles today. He coughed a lot during the night and so we were up most of the night. I think I got two straight hours of sleep and then a few other little bits here and there. Noah didn’t drink his bottles very good today. When I was feeding him a bottle tonight, he started coughing and threw up all over my shirt .. and my pants .. and his clothes … and my chair. It was a big one. Tonight, I slathered him in Vicks Vapor Rub and put him to bed. He is still coughing so we might be in for another long night.
In Other News …
Today, we registered Emily for a summer activity program at a local church. It’s a full day program and the kids are always busy. They get to do a lot of different activities during the summer. They have a huge, beautiful playground across the street from the church. They go swimming at a couple different pools. And they go on several different field trips. We don’t have a list of all the field trips yet, but it sounds like a lot of fun! Emily’s two cousins will also be going to the same place so it’s going to be a good summer for them.
