We are so sick over here. I told our pediatrician this week that I think we have the plague. He wasn't convinced, but let me tell you, IT FEELS LIKE IT.

Seriously, you might catch a germ even from reading something typed in my house.

We've got nasty coughs, sticky and green noses, rashes, high fevers, massive ear infections and general malaise.

It's been a LONG week.

So since we're not going anywhere, there's no time like the present to start creating some DIY cold remedies for the kids...and at this point, mine could use ALL of them...
