Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Update on Thanksgiving and Vicks on Feet

Thanksgiving was nice. A ton of food, good company, some wine, the kids behaved and we were smart enough to leave before they didn't. My only regret is not accepting the Pecan Pie my MIL was offering to let me take home. I've been craving it ever since. I think I'll send Hubby over to get some.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I had received an email claiming that putting Vicks on your feet will stop even the most persistent of coughs. We tried it on Boog last weekend and it seemed to work. Three days later the cough was back and the Vicks no longer seemed to work, I was thinking we just got lucky. A commenter to that post said it had to be NEW Vicks. Our bottle expired May 2006, oops. In a moment of desperation last night, I sent Hubby for a new bottle. We had already given the poor guy Delsyn, and some throat spray, along with some motrin for his fever. He sounded awful and couldn't stay asleep due to the hacking cough that had returned. Five minutes after applying the new Vicks to his feet, he was resting comfortably. He awoke four hours later and we re-applied allowing him to sleep until this morning. I really think this Vick's thing works!

As a side note:, We took Boog to the Doctor this morning and found out he has pneumonia. If Vick's can take care of that, I'm sold!


  1. I remember reading a forwarded email about this. I'll have to try it now that I read your post. I hope it works for us.

  2. hi there, glad vicks works! i likepecan pie as well, go for it.
