All about me.......well kinda!

First, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! Sorry, I havn't posted in a week. I came down with a terrible cold and cough. Needless to say, I am a bit under the weather! But, I feel better since I found my handy-dandy Vicks vapor rub. I searched for it Tuesday night and just about cried because I couldn't find it. Last night I tore the bathroom cabinent apart and found my new best friend named Vick. I grew up on this stuff and I swear by it. I have not used it on the boys yet, but I am sure the time is coming! They make a children's Vicks. Has anyone tried it? We had a funny incident the other night. Braydon drank all his juice, so we gave him a splash of sprite. He took a drink and threw it on the floor. (He wasn't expecting something fizzy) John picked up the sippy cup and the pressure from the sprite caused it to squirt 4 feet in the direction of a poor man that was eating with friends. Thank goodness he didn't seem to mind, but I am sure he didn't plan on having a "sprite" shower!! I have pictures to download that include the boys making handmade Valentine's cards. I won't go into detail about this because that is another blog for the near future.

I have tried the children's Vicks (or baby Vicks). It is a lot gentler and doesn't burn. Suzi didn't mind it :-) Of course, it isn't as good at getting your nose working again. That's funny about Braydon's Sprite! My dad said when I was a baby he gave me Sprite in a bottle one time when I was sick and I slapped it out of his hand. When it hit the floor the nipple blew up like a balloon and scared me.

LOL Do you think they should put a warning on the side of the can?? That is too funny!

A few weeks back I was telling Maureen about having a bad time sleeping since John had been coughing so much and keeping me awake.
She said, " You got to try this with Vicks Vapor Rub. Rub it on the bottom of your feet and put on socks and go to bed, its stops the coughing."
Believe or not, it was incredible. John slept without coughing and this Vicks remedy allowed me to sleep.
