Sniffles and All Things Sinful

Little Man is teething and he had some congestion when he woke up.  We know ear infections are a part of his brief medical history, so we are not playin' around with snot.

I vaguely remember writing the following post when Mari was a few months old. I searched and found it! It was the third post on my Seven years ago ... and I was on dial-up, so the photo is new because, hello.

There is REALLY nothing new under the sun:) These truths, both practical and philosophical, apply almost perfectly to my life today.

Mari Alice has a cold. I sheltered her the best I could, but with 4 siblings, an uncle, a dad and a bunch of friends, it was inevitable, I suppose. So, like I did with her older brothers and sisters, I have begun to use the (dun-dun-dun)NOSE SUCKER! It is now my goal in life to keep her sinus cavity free of mucus. A cold is one thing, but a secondary ear infection is quite another. So, to this preventive end, I arm myself with the light blue suction bulb, and boldly go where no mom likes to go....snot-sucking.
