The Girl Child

The girl child was sick this weekend. It started early Saturday morning with a croupy cough and sore throat and developed into wheezing by Sunday evening. Poor thing.

She claimed she didn't like the way the breathing treatment "tasted," and was not happy to do it. It really broke our hearts.

She stayed home from Kindergarten on Monday. She doodled and drew all day long. She followed me into the bathroom while I was cleaning it and when I turned around, she was busy working. We so love that little girl. And we are so happy that she is on the up-and-up and feeling better. Her cough is still nasty, but she has her ol' pep back.


Sandy said... is sad to see the little ones sick! Glad she is feeling better.

Yuk! Some of my kids had asthma when they were young. When one would be having treatment the other asthmatics would sit nearby because they all loved the smell and taste! Crazy! When we came across the machine which hadn't been used for about 5 years the youngest asthmatic didn't remember it at all, but said she felt like she really liked the machine. She felt drawn to it. I guess when it helps you breathe so much better you become quite partial to it! (Hope yours doesn't have to become partial to it!)

Breaks my heart too! Especially the second picture. Hope she looses the cough soon.
