Not only is K teething AGAIN, he also has a slight cough. That cough has recently spread to V. The difference between the two is that K can take various over the counter medications to suppress his cough and aid in any type of congestion and V cannot. Poor V has to just wait it out. This is actually the second cold he caught from K so I'm not super worried about it since he shook it off once before. Until it goes away I guess I'll be lugging out the cool-mist humidifier again and those blue snot sucker things will become my best friend.

Speaking of that snot sucker thing, until I had kids I had know idea what they were for. I saw them in the stores and at friend's homes who had children. So when I had K and was shown how to use it I was a little surprised. I was actually afraid to use it. I thought I was hurting K. I mean the tube portion is literally shoved up there nose and it looks like such a snug fit. I did it a few times, when K was stuffy, and was really gentle and slow about the sucking part. T did it. It seemed so rough and almost as though it was hurting K. But it wasn't. I tried it his way and it totally worked. Now with V I just jump right in and all that pesky snot up his nose is no match for my snot sucker. I actually love using it now. In some weird sick way there's a bit of satisfaction when you depress that blue ball and you here all that snot being sucked right up. Yuck!

  1. Piper's nose is too small for the snot sucker. I've tried two different ones and neither of them fit up there.
