How Many Sick Toddlers Does it Take....

To run through a blox of Puffs Plus in a day?

Oh my stars, RSV's, strep, pneumonia for one, and ear infections.

Dr. Mazza used to say that soft winters are the worst for illness. That the germs don't die if the temp is "in between"...

Summer sun kills them.

Winter cold kills them.

Anything in between?

They wear us down with their constant onslaught and REFUSE TO DIE.

So the toddlers are snuffly. A little whiny. Argumentative. And some are home.

But we've got a warm fire, hot lemonade, snuggles, Dr. Seuss and Sesame Street.

If you've got to be sick, those are pretty solid surroundings, right?

Bless you, Toddlers!


  1. Man, Ruthy, I sure wish I'd have been at your house last week when I had the creeping crud.

  2. Oh, honey, I would have taken good care of you!
