Down for the Count

It's amazing how much stops ... when one of the boys gets sick. T wasn't feeling well after we went out to dinner with Grandpa, and hasn't recovered yet. He missed the last day of Speech class, the last day of regular preschool at the park, and his last Speech session with Miss Erin. He was so determined to go to school Wednesday morning even though he could hardly sit up. He said he could just bring a towel with him (meaning, the towel would catch any throw-up!!) I didn't have the heart to tell him that school is over for the summer for him. He loves seeing his teachers and his friends. Many times when we are leaving preschool, he'd roll down his window, wave while shouting "Bye, friends!!!" So, I had to do a quick WalMart run last night when the kids were in bed. (Okay, little sidebar here: Why are there so many KIDS at WalMart close to 10pm? I just don't get it.) Today, I lucked out because I could leave T home with N, right after N got out of school so I could take the other two boys to the dentist. T has been sleepy and quite cuddly. Oh, and did I mention he's also a FURNACE!? I just pray and hope that whatever he has doesn't spread to the rest of the family. I'm leaving for a Girlfriends' Retreat for the weekend, and would hate to find out that everyone got sick. Heck, I don't want to get sick either!!

I'm sorry T is sick. Tell him I give him a virtual hug *HUG*. Poor boy. I sure hope it doesn't spread either. That would be bad. Thanks for helping us out with directions last weekend! I have you and uff uff to thank for helping us find places. So thank you oh so very much!!!!!

You are lucky. When my kids are all sick I wonder how I can escape. It sounds like T got sick at the same time. Good luck G! (Just kidding, I hope he feels better and that you have a great weekend.)
