Sick Pillow

Ty came home sick from school today. We're leaving for Texas on Friday. As soon as he started throwing up, I started panicking, and disinfecting. I want him to be comfortable, but I looked at his pillow and thought "What if someone else grabs that pillow later to use before I get a chance to wash it?" I needed to identify it as "the sick pillow" and leave no doubt that it's germy. I drew a picture on it and wrote "get well soon" on the side. Turned out cute and made Ty feel like he got a special present, while protecting the rest of the family.  All it took was an old pillowcase, a google image for inspiration, some sharpies, and about 2 minutes. I'm sure if you did it when your child wasn't actually sick, you could spend more time on it to make it fancier.

Yes, Michelle! We're all healthy thank goodness! I'm the only one who got it from him, so maybe the pillow helped! :) Along with isolation and disinfectant!
