Yep you guessed it, Little Buddy and I have both been ill. First it was Little B, then I caught it a week ago and now he has it back again, and even worse this time. Lots of the kids I work with have been ill too.
I have always loved the phrase, "The dreaded Lurgy." I feel that I am British, well not in this lifetime but maybe in my last one. I find all things British just fascinating. So I have decided we both have The Lurgy.
He has missed four days of school this week. I should have missed a day or two of work, but I didn't. I am now feeling much, much better, especially after many naps this past weekend. Little Buddy has a ways to go yet.
Here he is trying to blow raspberries with his lips. Even when is not feeling well he can still make me laugh. Being around all those other preschoolers has not been easy on his immune system this year. The first seven months he lived with us I don't think he was ever ill, but this school year has been hard. I guess he has to build up that immune system sometime.
Lord you can see in this picture I really need to wipe his nose. I have been following him around with a tissue which has not made him happy. We went to the Doctor today just in case it was an ear infection that would rear its ugly head right at 5 pm when the office closes for the weekend. Nope, he just has a nasty, miserable, cold with a sore throat which makes him not want to eat a thing at all. Not even potato chips or chocolate chip cookies his very favorite things to eat. My little one has already lost almost 2 pounds. Well he will gain it all back soon enough. Having Mr. 21 return home a few days ago has helped brighten everyone's spirits. You have to love a young man who picks up his coughing, wheezing and sneezing brother and could care less of the germs being spewed all over him.
Little Buddy will cough directly in your face and then say, "You have to cough into your elbow!!!" Well yes you do little one, now maybe you can try it!
Hope you all have a healthy weekend.
