You know what I most miss about my pre-kid life?
It's not the luxury of carrying a tiny purse.
It's not being able to fly to Greece on a moment's notice.
A kitchen floor not covered in Cheerios? Clothes not covered in stewed fruit? Eyelids not covered by yogurt? Close, but wrong.
It's Sudafed. God, I miss it.
Baby C picked up some lovely waves-of-snot-producing cold from somewhere--I think it was the communal train table at the Barnes & Noble, but when your kid puts everything that crosses her palm into her mouth, it's hard to say with any degree of accuracy where the germs originated. She's finally on the mend, but I am down for the count today.
Supposedly, a nursing baby is protected by "mother's immunity", but ours seems to have expired. True, she's eating almost all solids, but I'm still nursing her a few times and therefore am forbidden from consuming most over the counter meds.
At least I know how to blow my nose. But that's another post. Probably best read when hopped up on cold medication.
