He sounds very sympathetic. Maybe you should go lick his coffee cup in the morning.

To be fair, he is already on antibiotics himself for a sinus infection and has already missed a couple days of work from being sick before he got treated, and it makes sense that one parent should be well. If we were BOTH sick, it would be worse for me, since at least he's doing the whole bedtime routine (except baths) in the evenings. But still... a little more sensitivity to my predicament would be nice.

Somehow, over the years, I have developed a fair deree of immunity to my kids assorted illnesses. I never get the flu shot. I'm told it involves a needle.
