Here they go, here they go, here they go again
Girls, what's your weakness? Coughin
chillin', chillin', mindin' my business
I heard the monitor and I couldn't believe this
I swear, I stared, Julia my witness
My girls were coughing kinda
Wicked, wicked, have to kick it
I'm not shy so I gave them some benadryl
A doctor? No, that don't make me
We need sleep so I dose them swiftly
Croup, croup ba-doop
Croup ba-doop ba-doop ba-doop
Don't want no croup, baby.
Too late. Both girls have it.
You can stop singing now.
Nights are awful. Cool air humidifier, steamy shower, walks in the cold night air, ibuprofen, benadryl, honey elixir - none of these are working.
Waking up (assuming they actually got some sleep) with their hair stuck to the snot that's drained from them overnight can't be much fun.
At least we have Boogie wipes for this. These have a magical formula that destroys dried snot on contact...more potent than regular wipes, Formula 409, or straight bleach.
