The good - spitting
Why is spitting good? Because we've all had some sort of sinus and chest congestion thing going on for the last seven weeks. Most of the time it's been - "productive", for lack of a better term.
I won't bore you with all the details, but we've made some partial progress.
While they still don't hack anything up (and out), they do a fairly good "spit" sound.
Anytime, and I do mean anytime, someone as much as coughs at our house you will hear each of the girls say "tah", which, of course, is the spitting sound. It might be one quick cough or a good bout of deep coughs, but it will be followed by "tah".
As I sit here writing, the girls are asleep. They're in the middle of a very good nap and I have heard no sound for over two hours. Hadley just coughed twice. Seconds later, I hear Brynne, brought back to consciousness by her uncanny sense of comedic timing, says "tah". They each giggle a bit and go back to sleep.
The bad - nothing
While I do my best to corrupt them, they have somehow managed NOT to pick up any bad habits or actions. Oh well, better luck for me next week.
On second thought, maybe walking around spitting, or at least making the sound, is bad enough for now.
