Catch a Rhino and a Time-Out

October 7, 2011

The back to school plague has been taking extra liberties around Whitehorse these days. No man, woman, or child has been left untouched. Jasper has been gooping from every facial orifice since the middle of September. These  days, he wakes up with his eyes glued shut. And it wasn’t long ago that James was calling himself a “mucus seal” due to a barking cough and a face slathered in – you guessed it: mucus!

My children tend to gravitate toward self pity as a means of dealing with illness. Oscar has a much more entertaining/ less poke-your-eyeballs-out-annoying way of dealing with fevers and such. His mum, Colleen, took this video just before he was diagnosed with strep throat and rockin’ a temperature of 102. Oscar likes to piggyback Tylenol and Nirvana.

It’s a bitter sweet day when you catch a rhino AND a time-out.
