We all have colds at the moment, and ds is sounding very hoarse and coughing a lot. He has asked for ice cream, and I think it might be quite nice if he has a sore throat.

What does the MN Jury think? AIBU? He usually has Weetabix and fruit, or toast, or something else sensible.

good grief, you ought to have been up for hours knitting your own muesli and milking your organic goat dontcha know.

Yes, give him the icecream.

I have been up for hours <<steely glare>> with ill children.

Give it to him and then back to bed if he will

He probably won't go back to bed, but a nice quiet day in front of CBeebies is in order, methinks.

I may get some train tracks out later. My mum is coming, so that will be good.

He has now vanished two balls of ice cream and has modified the request to cake and ice cream. I said no.

So long as it's home made from milk from your own organically reared goats, eggs from your own free range chickens and sweetened with honey from your own hives it should be all right. IF it's served in you own hand thrown bowls. And frozen in a churn that you have been turning by hand for the last 6 hours.

Lol at him pushing his luck! grin

Definitely the right decision in my opinion grin

To be serious - before you flop in front of cbeebies, chuck some orange juice lollies in the freezer. Perfect for sore throats and coughs.

smile at the request modification. Think the ice cream must have helped!

No orange juice blush - would Ribena work?

I am woefully unprepared for illness in this house, because they are rarely ill. But then when they are ill I think it's worse because they're not used to it IYSWIM.

Mine are like that too - huge drama and consumtive drooping on the sofa at the hint of a sniffle!

Ribena would be fine. Plain ice is fine too - it's the icyness that's important. Orange juice has the edge because it gives a bit of vitamin C too. it's a good alternative to ice cream because some children get more mucous-y with dairy products.

My 2 year old DS requested "crispies and squash" for breakfast after rejecting the crumpets with honey I made him and ending up in tears - but he's had a fever for 2 days so if it makes him feel better then I'm all for it!

The smile when I said OK was worth it alone
