After Avi's first week of school, she caught a cold. So we went to town, steaming, humidifying, etc, and then...we cocooned her. It worked, because in no time ~ she was feeling better : )
At first though, I was laying in bed with her, reading one of her favorite books, Bear Feels Sick, and then I just pulled the sheet over her head. I figured it would feel better for her to breathe in warm air, rather than cold, right?
Dave came in shortly thereafter, looked around and asked, "Where's the Meek?" I said, she's under here, and pointed at the sheet. A little concerned about her suffocating (I don't think so!), he scooted me out of the way, quickly surveyed his bedding materials, and then built her her very own fort.
