We ended up keeping Rei out of daycare today, her hoarse barking cough was not going away and the prospect of 2 hours of outdoor play at daycare would have not helped any. Undeterred, we, as a family, ventured into London to do some more shopping in the morning. As we coughed our way there, I mused that the phelgmy, percussive coughing in stereo from the back seat was a (welcome?) change from wailing.
We're big into sneezing these days as well. Rei, after a particularly moving and effective sneeze, (the power of which seemed to take her aback) re-emphasized with the word, "Achoo!" Just in case we didn't hear her the first time.
