The Early Bird Gets Avian Flu

We parents are very proud of our children. We want them to do their best and if they outshine everyone else's runts **cough** children in the process (as a by-the-way... Not, you know, as a GOAL or anything), then so much the better.

Except for this instance...

Our pediatrician informed me today that my son has the very FIRST case of flu that she has seen this season.

Is that the sound of accolades? Phone calls from The Times and People? A marching brand setting up on my front lawn?

Nah... just coughing.
