I think the first year you have kids you are destined to stay sick. Having just gotten over the bad stuff, I have a head cold that feels like any moment it will shove my eyes out of socket. The sinus pressure is unbelievable. Yuck.

I was fine yesterday. No problems. Today is a whole different story.

  • We have a 3-month old and I have felt that way for the past week – but the cold seems to be retreating at this point! Of course, it’ll probably be back tomorrow!

  • Erick,
    I can remember a time when Gerald and Tyler, who was 18 months old, and I had a virus. He learned to puke in a trash can at an early age. However, jacob is running a temp of 102 today. Hope you feel better.
