Owen picked up a little cold last week and passed it to Mia over the weekend. By yesterday she was mostly recovered, but did have some lingering congestion and occasional cough. I felt confident that she was healthy enough and not contagious so I sent her off to her preschool, but I was concerned that her stuffy nose would immediately brand me as the mom who sends her sick kid off to school. I suppose then it could almost be seen as fortunate that she cried the entire time, therefore providing a perfectly legitimate alibi for that stuffy nose.
My god it was awful. It will get better though, right? Tell me it will.
