How To Get Well

I haven't written in here for a while, I've been fighting a cold. Ian has been fighting a little head cold, too. We have very different approaches to how to get well. Here are our approaches to getting well:
Mommy's Approach:
Take extra vitamin C, drink plenty of fluids, take head cold remedy, make sure not to forget allergy medicine (just in case it's allergies), get extra rest, blow nose often. Repeat as needed.
Ian's Approach: wake Mommy in the middle of the night to complain about cough, get cough syrup, sleep a few more hours, get up and act as if you are not around the house for hours up and down the hall until Mommy begs you to stop, ignore runny nose..just let it go..suck it up if necessary or wipe it if Mommy tells you to, snack often, don't get extra rest. Ask for cough syrup at bedtime. Repeat at whim.
Guess who is looking better and who isn't? I'm planning to ignore my cold, too. Maybe it will get bored and go away!
