Today was a raggedy, blah day. Both kids are suffering colds. I suspect that Jason is also cutting some teeth. He was fussy and difficult. Laura was sneezy and discontented, repeatedly telling me, “I’m bored. This is boring.” I felt dragged into the grumps.
In the middle of all the yucks, Laura said, “You know, Mom, ice cream cures colds.” She wanted some for her snack. She emphasized her request by drawing a picture of a gigantic ice cream cone of strawberry, chocolate, and green apple ice cream.
Her desert tonight? A bowl of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. After she was done, I asked if she felt better. She said she did.
What is your favorite cold remedy?
