Curious Bedtime Apparel

A terrible round of colds has been working through our household lately. (I believe our family is singlehandedly keeping the kleenex industry afloat...) We've had more than our fair share of coughing, sneezing, runny noses and sore throats.

As is often the case, our three-year-old has fared the worst of the bunch. His cold turned into a nasty ear infection. For a few days the poor little guy's cough was especially horrible. He coughed to the point of gagging and throwing up several times.

As a result, our three-year-old made a habit of taking his "bucket buddy" to bed at night. Just in case. The other night Ben and I went in to check on the boys before turning in ourselves. We found our son fast asleep, sporting the following headgear:

(Please excuse the picture quality. The room was dark.)

We're not exactly sure how he managed to fall asleep with a garbage can on his head. (No worries, it was clean and empty.) Our son was thoroughly unconscious. Perhaps Ben and I were somewhat overzealous with the powerful cold meds...
