This has been the scene around here for most of the week. It's been accompanied by the soundtrack of coughing, runny noses, stuffy noses, fevers, stomach aches, ear infection and pink eye. (If you're wondering what a fever, stomach ache, ear infection or pink eye sound like, it's this: "mooooommmmmm!")
Poor Henry got the brunt of it. He is such a sweet little patient, all cuddly and floppy and loving. Every afternoon, I snuggle him up on the couch, hand over several pacifiers and turn on Meerkat Manor. Within two episodes, Henry is out like a light. It works every time. I'm hoping that the sickness leaves, but the afternoon Meerkat-nap stays.
