I need to know if there’s someone I can sue or at least beat the living snot out of because I came home from work this morning to two sick children. Yes, my kids are sick, AGAIN and I have a runny nose, too. I thought winter time was when the colds keep attacking, not early fall. I want to know whom I can blame.
Maybe we’ll just have to keep the kids in a hyperbaric chamber and not let them play with other children. That’s one possible solution, but I imagine that the electric bills would be through the roof. We can possibly get only one and have the two of them take turns or make a competition out of it. She’s a little more stable on her feet and speaks better, but he’s a wily little guy who can surprise us so it might be a close contest. I can see it now, our daughter sprinting to the finish line when she slips on some well placed oatmeal on the floor and our son wobbles across the wire for the gold. Or we can let them live their lives like regular children and just deal with the occasional sickness, but that’s no fun.
I know there are a lot worse problems out there than runny noses and foghorn coughs and I should be thankful that we’re usually healthy except for the past month, but I really enjoy complaining. If it annoys just one person it’s worth it. I’ve done my job so I’m going to put some Vick’s Vapo rub on my feet and relax. If anyone finds out who did this to my family let me know.
