"Germ Warfare"

So all this week, Chris kept asking, Is Bridget coming down with something?

I explained, her preschool class is learning about germs...what they are, how they spread, and how to practice healthy habits.

It must have made a big impact on her, because she was sneezing and coughing (in a very contrived, exaggerated way) every other minute this past week. (With all the crud going around, we are all a little bit on edge when we hear coughing!).

Bridget has known how to cough into her elbow for about a year now. She loves to practice covering her sneezes and coughs.

She's such a little actress. And her big break came this week, when she was asked by her teacher to demonstrate the "covering your cough" technique to the class during circle time.

Yea, Bridget. You go girl.

I wish I had pictures of that!


  1. Aww so cute!! Good for her that she could show the whole class how to do it the right way!

    We've all been sick this past week and Harper (my 2 year old) tells Bennett (my 5 month old) to "cover your mouth!" when he coughs now-LOL.

  2. I think that it is great that they are teaching that in school. Way to go Bridget leading the class with a demonstration of how to cough properly. I can just imagine her coughing around your house after that class. What a cutie.:)

  3. I love that. Greta taught John MIchael how to cough into his arm. He picked it up really quickly when everyone around him was recovering from the swine flu coughing. He coughs on demand, too. So funny.
