In spite of the persistent claims of wet weather coming our way, we have had truly beautiful weather here- especially for this time of year. It has been sunny, with highs in the fifties. Considering it is our rainy season, this hiatus is enough to make a person delirious.
Unfortunately, the germs are circulately right on schedule.
My little girl is asleep on my bed right now. She has a chest cold that seems to be getting worse, making her sound like a miniature locomotive. It would be funny if it wasn't so pitiful. I hate it when my babies are sick- and they are always your babies when they are sick (even the ten-year-old).
And some well-meaning person felt the need to tell me today that some children have gotten pneumonia from it and a few have died- I really don't need to hear things like this!
So I am thinking of picking her up and rocking her while she sleeps. And suddenly it makes me remember when she had the same thing as a baby....and it's hard to believe that was five years ago. Time goes by so quickly....
So here's to hoping the lovely weather stays, and the nasty germs go.
