So, this is what it's like to have two sick kids at once, hey?

Nick started to come down with a cold on Saturday and Lillian followed suit last night. I was in bed at 6:30 this morning with a hacking boy on one side and a snuffy girl on the other. What is it with babies that they can't figure out to breathe out of their noses??

As much as I didn't envy Liam having to head out in the cold this morning, there was a definite part of me that wanted to say "Hey, I'll go to work today and you can stay home with the kids. If only he could lactate. Damn him.

Oh, and I almost forgot the best part. Lily apparantly has a built-in defence mechanism against Mommies putting things in her nose. I squirted some saline solution in her nose in an effort to clear out some of the goo. She started to choke so I piked her up and she puked a huge blob of milk and goo all over me. Yum. "If you're gonna squirt stuff up my nose and slime you, woman!! Bwahaha!!"

Yes - not only do they come with the "disgusting goo squirt" defense mechanism, babies have the built-in "mommy is having sex" alarm. Wonderful tools to ensure that they won't be replaced by yet another sibling.

Lily's alarm is actually set to "Mom and Dad are thinking about sex".

My girls all did the "mom's putting food in her mouth so I must scream my head off" thing. That was really annoying.
