So Bean is sick.  I think he's got croup.  If you've never had the pleasure of dealing with this illness, let me break down.  First the nose starts dripping.  And dripping.  And dripping.  Then a cough ensues.  But it's not just any old cough.  It's a cough that sounds like a barking seal...if you can imagine.  And any position you put them in to sleep, causes them to wake up because of the gross dripping of snot, which sufficiently closes up any air passage allowing them to breathe.  We've done the steam from a hot shower, humidifier, saline spray and snot sucker.  Thankfully there is no fever and he's in a pretty good mood during the day.  It's just the night time that gets me.  No sleep for Mommy or Bean.  Hopefully he feels better soon cause Mommy needs some sleep!

Just an FYI for you Mommies out there...the NoseFrida Snot Sucker is the BEST!  It's so much better than that bulby thing you get from the hospital.  Bean would scream at the top of his lungs whenever I got that bulb thing out, but with the Snot Sucker, he just smiles and laughs...truth!
