Sick

Ellie's got one of her worst colds yet. We got her up from a nap to wipe her nose and give her some milk. While she was babbling half-heartedly, she said something that sounded like "sick." I wasn't sure I heard her correctly, so I asked her to say "sick." She did and it sounded about the same as what I heard before. I looked at Elizabeth quizzically and she reciprocated. I asked Ellie what "sick" meant. In the saddest little voice she replied, "Hurts."


Let me tell you, that tugs at a parent's heart strings.

Awe, that's just pitiful... She's getting too smart.

you might drop the milk for a bit...it tends to produce more mucus.

I hope she's feeling better soon...being sick is no fun!
