In our home there is very little childhood sickness....most of the year. Our boys are fairly healthy and as I look at report cards there have been less than a handful of absent days due to being ill. But there is something I am starting to see a pattern with, and that is our youngest son being sick right when school starts and when school ends. This has been the same for the past three years, and he seems to be playing by the same rules again this year.
Just three days out of school and he is running a fever that I can not control, vomited, and seems to have conjunctivitis that went away for 12 hours and is now back! WTH? Why does this little guy seems to catch things at the start and end of the school year? And why is it always vomit? Ugh, summer is supposed to be fun and a time to play and run around, go places and hang out with friends....ugh! I guess I am being a selfish mommy, but this is not how I invisioned our first week off from school.
I feel bad for the little guy who ha not seemed to get off the couch since tuesday afternoon, after a great playdate with a friend. He has not eatten very well, or been able to truely taste things that he normally loves to eat. It has been a bummer for him and for his brother too! Beyond the two library trips and four doctor appointments (four different drs for different people in the house), we have done very little. Plus the rain has not helped us either.
So to this I say let the sickness end and the summer begin....again, PLEASE!!!!!
