Spoke Too Soon

As soon as I say life is boring and lovely, something has to go wrong, right?

OK, so nothing's WRONG wrong, in the grand scheme of things. But, Anthony's sick - he's got a virus or something brewing.

Tomorrow his class is having their Thanksgiving lunch and he's going to miss it. I can't even begin to tell you how sad he is about that. He was going to be dressed as a Pilgrim, and he's sad that he doesn't get to now. Thankfully, the costume they made at school is supposed to come home with him at the end of the week.

Thursday, of course, is his birthday. Friday is Grandparents' Day at school. I hope that he gets to enjoy both of those fun days at school. The birthday child gets to wear a crown and a ribbon all day in his class; I really don't want him to miss that!!

I picked Anthony up at school today around 11:00. When we got home, I asked him if he wanted to read books or play with his trains. He said, "I'd really rather take a nap, Mommy." Ok.......

So after he fell asleep, I went in to check on him, and this is what I saw:

I figured there was NO WAY he could breathe, so I went to move the pillow off of his head, and saw this:

He's feeling a little better this evening, but was in bed early. He'll spend the day with my mom and grandmother tomorrow; hopefully he won't feel poorly!


We were at my parents' house last night and my mom fed Ben his dinner. He was REALLY enjoying himself. The kid loves sweet potatoes!

I'm sorry to hear he's sick! Prayers that he gets better real quick and doesn't have to miss all of those fun days at school.
