Maddy has earned herself the new nickname of Bug. My friend Thomas warned me, "as soon as you have kids, be prepared to be sick all of the time" he told me, "especially once they go into daycare". I used to just laugh at him but he wasn't kidding. Maddy spent two days last week in daycare and by Friday night she had a cold. By Sunday I had a cold. She's fine, I'm still swimming under water. I'm not sure which is worse, a cold or the flu. The flu is definitely harder on you but at least it has a beginning and an end. A cold just seems to drag itself out, letting you feel like you're getting better then smacking you down again and again. I'm not sure if the pounding headache is from the cold or from a lack of caffeine.
