The dreaded first cold of the season has hit the McYong household. Addison was the first to succumb to the neverending snotty nose. Now I am suffering, without the snot faucet thankfully, but it does feel like I’ve been hit with a ton of bricks or taken a large dose of Nyquil. Aaron has a sore throat but has been limping along. Unlike the pre-princess days when we were footloose and fancy free, a sick day does not entail 24 hours in PJs catching up on PVR movies. It is pretty much like a regular day, except everything seems much more exhausting.
After the first couple of days, Addison seems to be on her way to recovery. Her usual MO when sick is to stop eating, but her appetite is improving day by day. We’ll take that as a good sign.
For fun, I’ve uploaded a video Aaron put together showing the princess’ progression from quadrupedal to bipedal. He always laughs at the spot where Addison takes a tumble. Aaaaaah….parent humour!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
