We've been dealing with the average sniffles that most people have in their houses lately. And by "we" I mean the kids and I. Mike has steered clear of us all in hopes of not having to look like Rudolph.
This morning as we were waiting for Maddie to head out for the bus stop, Jake came up to me and gave me a hug and said, "I don't mind hugging you even if you have a cold. We'll all just be known as the 'Murphy Sickos'."
I told him that was probably not something he should advertise as a new name for us. I plan on having them play with friends this summer. I'm not sure playtime would be well received when a kid walked in the door and said to his mom, "Can I go over to Jake 'The Sicko' Murphy's house?"
