Heidi has the croup. At least that is what I am thinking this barking cough is. I'm going to call the doc in a few minutes. Either way, I can't let her go to the babysitters with such a cold. The other infant might get it and that would be horrible. Now my entire week is messed up. I can't go to work until Tom gets out of work. I can't let either child play with others until I know they are not contagious. And as soon as Heidi is better, I know that Gwen will get sick.
Anyone with a child knows that joys of sick days. No longer something you get to relax in. To make is worse, you are using them when you feel perfectly healthy.
