They keep telling me

They keep telling me that, sometime soon, all our hard work at building our children's immune systems by putting up with them being sick for so long as little children will pay off: they will be healthy for ever after etc. etc. etc....

But to hear Skibo's cough this evening: of course, it doesn't start until he's already asleep, so I lie down with him, to keep him on his side for a bit: LOML takes Boo into our bed so that she can get some sleep too, so that Skibo's coughing doesn't keep her from getting to sleep...

Oh well. Only another two months or so of winter, and then we can get the spring coughs and colds.

Yours, (cough) miserable (cough),
