A sick little boy...................

These past few days have not been kind to Little Buddy.  Monday when he woke from his nap he had a fever, and by the time I got home from work it was getting higher.  He then began to get sick and it has only now started to slow down.  He does get sick every once in a while, I think he gets very dehydrated from all of his hard work and gets ill, but this time it just might be a full blown flu.  Bless his heart he had a high fever last night and just cried and cried.  There is nothing like rocking a warm little one who does not feel well.  Needless to say I had to stay home from work today to tend to the many diapers we have had.  For once I am grateful Little Buddy still uses a diaper or I would have one heck of a mess on my hands.  

He did want to get dressed which is a good sign, but then he was on the floor watching the Disney Channel all morning long.  Nothing like a bit of Mickey Mouse to help brighten your day and make you feel better.


So hoping he feels like this picture above soon, and that his smile returns at least by tomorrow I miss it and his sweet little voice chatting away.  As there has not been time for yarny fun, I am posting a few Little Buddy funnies for you to enjoy.

His teacher told me two weeks ago he had to be placed in the,"make a better choice chair," for throwing toys off the table at table time.   I think she thought I would take this seriously but I am sorry that one just made me laugh.

When his Aunt Heidi was here watching him so we could go to Mr. 21's swim meet she asked him to stop touching something saying, "I don't think your Mom would want you to touch that."  His reply was, "Aunt Heidi, shut your eyes."

I am asked this one frequently.  "Mom, do you have your mouth on?"  

A few days ago he was in the bathtub and I was at my green counter top near my sink getting vitamins out.  He proceeded to quietly dump all sorts of water on the floor as my back was turned.  When I told him not to do that any more this is what he said. "Mom, go to the green table and do your work." 

 He really does make me laugh.

He can now count to 25, knows his ABC's, knows all his colors and is initiating all sorts of conversation.  He is a hoot, a hoot that does not feel good right now but still a hoot.

Hope you are having a great day and that the flu has not descended into your home.

Oh, poor Little Buddy.. and you too.. the flu is such an awful thing. I do hope he's feeling better fast. Thanks for sharing his funnies.. I got a kick out of each and every one of them. The little ones sure are a bright spot in our lives, aren't they?

There is nothing like the chattering of a young boy and that gorgeous smile to make you smile and cheer your soul. Hope he is feeling better soon and don't forget to look after yourself.

HollyM said...

Oh those are all too cute!@ I love it when he says "close your eyes". Ha, you'll have to steel yourself to keep a straight face sometimes!
I hope he feels better soon, for both of you.

Boo to the Flu!! Hope he is doing better and I agree a little Mickey Mouse helps always. I know the humor of an almost 4 year old...my Tiger is a hoot also and you never know what might come out of their mouths!
hugs,
Linda

Oh that dear little man, I do hope he feels better soon, it's horrible when they're ill isn't it. His comments made me laugh out loud though. Hopefully he will be back to making you smile again very soon. I'm sending him my very best wishes and some good energy. CJ xx

Jo said...

Oh dear. Hope he gets better soon. You should go and do some crochet on the 'green' table. It sounds like a good place to be. Jo x

Poor little Buddy, there's nothing like a mama's cuddle to make him feel better though & I hope that lovely smile returns soon. He is indeed a hoot - such a delightful sense of humour! Are you keeping a journal of all these sweet & funny sayings for him to look back on when he's older?
Hugs
Xx

Judy S. said...

He is such a cutie! So sorry he's feeling poorly and hope he recovers real soon. Glad you're keeping track of his priceless sayings!

I hope your LB is feeling better soon. My son had it just about 10 days ago. The stomach part just lasted a few days, but the cold part took a while to run it's course. I pushed Campbell's Chicken Noodle soup (which he loves), oyster crackers and lots of apple juice. Kids say the cutest things! Have a nice evening, Heather

Betsy said...

Oh no. Poor little Buddy and poor the rest of you too. I hope you don't succumb to the same thing. His little face looks so happy in that picture and I hope he's soon feeling like that again. Love the "Buddy'isms" that you shared with us. I had to smile at them. He's pure boy isn't he?
Blessings my friend,
Betsy

Debby said...

I laughed outloud about telling Aunt Heidi to close her eyes. That's pretty smart. We had a rule that our son had to have his hands in his pockets in a store. Before that I just carried him. He was 4 when he came to live with us. A good thing he was a little small for his age then. He sure isn't now.
Did I tell you that my daughter's name is Heidi.

Jennifer said...

It sounds like he is learning and growing beautifully. I hope he is all better soon.

Debby said...

I sure hope he is feeling better soon.

Jen Vandervoort said...

He's a ray of sunshine, and a lovely little cheeky one.

I do so hope that he is feeling better soon, poor little guy.

I'm giggling over his antics, he's going to be a real card. Well he already is isn't he?

Dee said...

Oh my ......I think you might just have a little firecracker on your hands. LOL And, certainly a very smart little one.

I hope he is feeling better soon so he can get up to little boy antics. We wouldn't have it any other way, would we?

Gracie Saylor said...

Clever boy :-) and I hope by now he is feeling better, Meredith. Thanks for letting us enjoy getting to know him. Hope the rest of you continue to be well and that your week gets happier. It you get a chance to see the Public Broadcasting Nature program about penguins you might enjoy it. xo

Chris said...

What a character! He is going to alwayskeep you hopping and laughing ! Just priceless! Hope he's feeling better and you stay well!

Teresa said...

Poor little guy! I hope he feels better soon!
What a little smartie! He knows how to get around things doesn't he,
Look how much he has learned in the time you have had him! Colors, ABC's etc. I bet he is a hoot!

Pradeepa said...

Poor Buddy, hope he feels better soon.

He's something, that Little Buddy of yours, isn't he? ; ) Hope he gets well soon!! xx

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL! I am so glad you shared little Buddy's comments with us, Meredith! I encouraged Amanda to write down all the funny things the boys would say... now, you will have these to look back on one day. There is nothing as precious as a child. Hope little Buddy is feeling MUCH better today... and that if it's the flu, you don't get it! blessings ~ tanna

Vikki Hooks said...

Sounds like he can be a handful at times..So good you can find the joy..hope he feels better soon. Everytime my youngest went swimming she would end up with an ear infection.and be as sick as a dog..hope that is not the case with yours. Have a wonderfully blessed week

Sandra said...

You know I love all your posts but the Buddy ones are the best. This old grandma just smiles and smiles reading about your beautiful family who was so blessed to have Buddy join you.
Hope Buddy is feeling much better...make sure you put your mouth in today...just for him. :o)

Stins said...

What a sweet, funny and smart little guy he is :-)!
I hope he feels like his old self again very soon...
Lots of love from Mirjam.

Aw little sweetie, I hope he feels better soon x

kathy b said...

So many kids are sick around here too. Those bugs FLY swiftly around the country with all the air travel.
Poor LB. Hope he is enjoying popsicles and the like.
Nothing like when they POP out of it.
His attitude is awesome!

linda said...

Bless his little heart I hope he recovers very soon. :) xx

Melissa said...

ohmygosh too funny!!! Wasn't there a tv show once "Kids Say The Darndest Things"? They surely do. I'll bet we all have a few in our kid-cache. I hope he feels better soon. You want to make them feel better and you hurt when they do, and sometimes just rocking them makes all the difference.

Annie Cholewa said...

I do hope that your little man is feeling all better soon x

mynestofyarnandbuttons said...

What a hoot your Little Buddy is! Hope the flu does not last too long. He's a funny one just like his mom : )

Poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon. The little Buddyisms are so cute too.

Becky L. said...

Aw, hoping LB is better now. Love his sayings. Children can say some funny things. Cherish them. I had some type of bug last week which made pretty tired and messed up some things. My daughter got it as well but is pretty much over. Right now people are having allergy issue with all the early blooms of flowers and trees. Everything is way ahead of schedule. Sigh. Take care.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Ha-ha! I love that he has such a sense of humor. So cute! Bless him. Hugs, Tammy

Toni said...

Oh no! I hope he's feeling better soon.

kristieinbc said...

I'm getting caught up on my blog reading after a hectic week, Meredith. I hope by now Little Buddy is feeling better. Oh my, he is hilarious. I especially loved him telling his aunt to close her eyes. :-)

Grammy Braxton said...

I hope LB is feeling much better by now. I love the things you posted him saying. He's thinking all the time, that little guy. I know he keeps you entertained.

Hugs,
