Sick Rick

Edie hasn't really slept the last two nights. It's been really confusing and exhausting because we've grown used to full nights of sleep. Finally, the sleeplessness explained itself this morning when Edie woke up with a snot faucet instead of a nose. Then she face planted on her chair and got a bloody lip. Which is extra gross when mixed with snot. What's extra, extra gross is when I gave her an ice cube to suck on for her lip and she dropped it on the rug, then picked it back up and put it in her mouth with cat fur on it.

She keeps pointing at her nose and saying "nooooooo?" when it drips too much. The silver lining? This is her first cold where she can blow her own nose! I hold the tissue and say "blow!" and SHE DOES. This may not seem like a big deal, but those of you with children know - it totally is.

It is the best thing EVER! (Not a cold, but the nose blowing). We've all been sick (even the dog!?!) this past week and we can now ask Emmi to get a tissue and wipe her nose - and she walks over, pulls out a tissue, wipes her nose, and gives us the nasty tissue. One of my favorite milestones to date!

I first read the title of this post as "Slick Rick" and thought you had written about one of my favorite rappers of all time.
Hope Edie gets better soon and lets you (and her) get some sleep.
