    Default Sometimes, You Just Have to Laugh

    My 3yo came down with a cold today. Before bed, I gave him cold medicine and put some Vick's on his chest and upper lip. Two hours later he needed help with blowing his nose. He had smeared the remainder of the (small) jar all over his body and bed in an effort to clear his sinuses.

    I had only left the jar in there because dh was going to lie down with ds for a while, and I figured dh might need to apply a little more of it. By the time dh left the room, we had both forgotten about the jar.

    I just comfort myself that ds didn't eat the Vick's.

    Poor kid.

    lol & I bet the smell of half a jar cleared up his sinuses.

    My kids also just came down with runny noses this morning

    He had spent the evening going back and forth between liking Vicks for making it easier to breathe and wanting it wiped off because it stung. I have no idea what possessed him to put on so much given that he new it would hurt if put in the wrong places.

    Hope your kids feel better soon!

    Kids are so goofy sometimes! I bet he figured, that despite the stinging, more would just make him feel better quicker. Poor guy. I hope he's feeling better now.

    He is. It seems it was a 24-hour thing. He was much better the next day, but his little brother was feeling bad then. Now their both a little congested and tired, but fine.
