We almost made it a whole month into school before the first bug came home.
Friday night, Charlie complained of a sore throat.
Saturday, I had him gargle with warm salt water, and later made him a nice hot cup of tea with honey.
(image found on line at the gifted penguin, uk - isn't it sweet?)
He went and played paintball later in the day with his friends, and came home feeling even worse.
Sunday? Ricola throat drops, chicken soup, more tea, and an entire box of Kleenex later, I officially declare it the first cold of the season.
Is that a scratchy throat I feel, or is it just dry in here?????
