Croupy Cough Syndrome

Paytie bug still has a little cold and sounds so congested. I hope it doesn't get worse. She's had it for about a week now it worries me with her being so little. Almost 3 months old. My 4 year old Gibb has the croupy barking seal cough AGAIN, that he had about a week and a half ago and a month ago, only now it has totally hit.

He woke up in the middle of the night freaking out because he couldn't breathe. So we rushed into the bathroom got the shower going and the steam finally helped after water was running down my walls.

It was a good time to clean the bathroom. Who doesn't like to clean the bathroom at 2 a.m.? I mean its the best cleaning time. No one is around to mess it up and since you have nothing else to do except sit in the bathroom while your child is trying to breathe again it seems like it's the perfect time to clean. There was no scrubbing or using elbow grease. The walls came clean so easy and it didn't even take very long and with the steam it really cleans.

Who doesn't want to steam clean their bathroom? I didn't even have to buy a steam cleaner. I cleaned the walls, the mirror, the cabinets, the door, the counter and sink, even the toilet. I would have cleaned the shower and tub except their was hot water running in it. I probably should have taken him outside but I wasn't about to go outside and freeze my bootie off in the middle of the night.

Besides I probably lost a little weight sweating and cleaning the bathroom and not to mention my sinuses were so cleaned out. I felt wonderful. Decided to go back to bed. I put Gibb's back to bed around about 3:30 Paytie bug was awake. She decided it was play time. Time to kick and stretch until 6 a.m. Then back to sleep for and the hubby is waking up to get ready for work. Can you say s-l-e-e-p d-e-p-r-i-v-a-t-i-o-n?? Who needs sleep anyway.

SPRING WHERE ARE YOU??? Probably following WENDA around. You'll know what I'm talking about if you are from SITS.
I need to go find her... I need some fun for the day since its rainy and yucky but at least it's warm. In the 50's today. Yeah!!

Paytie bug just went to sleep and TJ my 5 year old is home from school now so I think I can go look for her for a minute before lunch. If you want to join in the search for Wenda I'll post the button off to the right so you can find out more info...

In the meantime send your croupy cough syndrome GO AWAY wishes my way will ya?
