Macie's (A)Musings (#5): The Anatomy of a Cough (as understood by a 2 year-old)

At 2:55a this morning, one of the girls (I couldn't tell which one!) started having a coughing fit and seemingly couldn't get it under control. After a while, I started to figure it was Macie, since Ivie would be smart enough to grab her water bottle for a drink, but I doubted that Macie could make that connection yet.

Sure enough, a couple of minutes later, Macie marched into our room, directly to my bedside, and declared (matter-of-factly with an air of frustration):

"My neck hurts."

I managed to stifle my giggles long enough to instruct her to go back to her room, take a drink of water, and get back in bed. At least she's got her external anatomy down...
