Monday morning

He doesn't have a fever, but the 11-year-old has stuffed up sinuses, watery eyes, and a grating cough. I wouldn't want to sit next to him in school, so I'm keeping him home.

The problem with a child who feels awful but is not sick is that such a child has too much energy to lay on the couch and rest.

Damn the "no-drowsy" cough syrup!

I'm sure they make a "drowsy" formula cough syrup -- ever look for Irish creme or rum. (Kidding, okay?)
