I guess there is a cold bug going around. The boys (including Jim…and now me) caught it, and this sucker is a doozy. Poor Grant has this super-goopy, major runny nose and yucky cough. Gabriel and Grant are doing a little better but the hard part is finding effective medicine. We practically have a mini-pharmacy of cough syrups, cold medicines, and multi-symptom stuff but nothing has worked so far! I guess we just have to tough it out and keep a ton of tissues nearby. We have been having a great time despite that though. Last week we received some cute promotional items for the upcoming “Curious George” movie. I grabbed a few t-shirts for the boys and judging by the past few days, you would think it was Christmas! Gabriel will not take off his Curious George t-shirt and now Grant is the same way.:) They want to sleep in it, play in it, and even wanted to wear it to church. Gabriel was already familiar with George from books we have read but now it seems to be everywhere since the movie is coming out. I just have to laugh because usually Jim and I put so much though into gifts we get the kids and usually the excitement only lasts a moment or two. Here is something that was free and small and you would think it was the best present in the entire world! That’s the great thing about kids, it doesn’t have to be elaborate to make them happy and sometimes the little things are the best (pots and pans, a cardboard box, etc). The bonus to the Curious George story is that they have been actually asking for banana’s for snack time! Lol.
