Dear Cold Fairy...

Dear Cold Fairy,

Our family just wanted to take a minute, in between hacking, sniffing, snorting, fever, sneezing and general malaise, to thank you for blessing us with yet another round of your little gift.
We have now begun round 3 (that’s times 6 of us—18 colds). By my calculations, the little viral sprinklings you are so generously leaving at my house have allowed at least one of my kids to miss a minimum of one or more of their classes per week since February 13. That’s three economy size double packs of the generic brand of Nyquil. A new Neti pot. Five boxes of tissues. Two complete sets of brand new toothbrushes, so we won’t keep passing it back to ourselves. Delsum, Robitussin, Dayquil, Airborne, Ibuprofen, several gallons of oj and a ton of make-up homework.

Cold Fairy, you can leave now.

But thanks for sharing….

I am SO sorry you all are sick, but this is SO funny...

I wish I had written it!

Oh wow, I'm sorry you are all so sick. I hope this finds you feeling better really soon!

Thanks for stopping by. Oh and if I thought I had anything to do with the way my girls have gotten so much closer, I'd share it with you, but I can only claim divine intervention. :)

I hope this fairy actually listens!
You all need a break from this fairy!

Good luck!
