Little Man had gotten in trouble for his grades and I had told him Tuesday morning that I was calling his teachers. It was then that he said his belly hurt. I wasn't sure if he really was getting what C had, or if he was a smart boy trying to get out of temporarily facing the music. Well, I got my answer around noon on Tuesday. The school nurse called. Little man threw up his chocolate milk all over himself and the cafeteria. Poor little bug.
I rushed home and grabbed him up from school. They had him in a change of clothes and he was as white as a ghost. I brought him home, got him set up on the couch where he moaned and groaned for several hours. He got sick several times as the night progressed but finally managed to fall asleep. C on the other hand. Played in a basketball game, won (they are still undefeated!) and changed real quick while I played with my new phone that arrived late Tuesday afternoon, and off to Civil Air Patrol we went :)

We both stayed home on Wednesday (He wasn't allowed back until it had been 24 hrs of no fever and no puke). He slept almost all day. I watched TV on netflix and watched my sweet little boy sleep.
Later Wednesday night, Little man was feeling MUCH better and I had intended on sending him to school on Thursday. Yet, when Thursday rolled around he was warm to the touch and said his belly still hurt. Honestly, I think he was trying to stretch this whole being sick and being waited on hand and foot (not to mention NO SCHOOL) for as long as possible. However, I figured his sister got an extra day to try solid food at home and fully rest up he could too. Not to mention, I really didn't feel like going to work yet. So, we sent the girl off to school and Little Man and I napped. Like All day. And the cats napped too..see?
Honestly, it was awesome. After C left for school, I sat in my jammies, under my heating blanket (seen above) with the cat and napped in my chair like I was 80. Eventually, I got up and unloaded the dishwasher and fed the boy the requested Mac and Cheese, which he kept down. Along with oreo's. And Pretzels. And Ginger Ale. I also dug out my frames mom and dad got me for Christmas and put some pictures in them and hung them up in my dining room!
Then, I napped. And Napped some more. Bee came home eventually and worked out with a game on the xbox. Worked out after working a job that requires him to haul, lift, maneuver, and carry 100 lb sheets of drywall all day. I watched him while playing on my phone. And Ate a cookie. This, all while having just woke up from my 4th nap of the day.
I miss being home lol!
However, it was back to the grind today...for both of us. Sigh.
At least it's FRIDAY! :)
