How often my boys are sick. It's gotten to the point that I lie to people when they ask me how the boys are. It's embarrassing and boring to keep saying this one or that one has a fever...
Last week Buddy Boy came home from daycare on Wednesday with a fever of 103.3 so we stayed home for four days. He is on amoxicillian now for an ear infection.
Last night Punkin came home with a fever of 102. This morning it was 105. Sweet Jesus! 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
I actually called my mom and asked her to come and pick him up and she is going to take him to the Dr. today because I thought I should go to work. I have been out 9 days already this school year. My other two librarian coworkers aren't in today so if I called in sick at the last minute the media center would be without staff. Am I crazy for going to work when my baby is sick?
Who better to take care of him than my mom? She just called and she has an appointment at 11 this morning. The fever is down and he is eating Cheerios.
I swear I have been in to the Dr.s office at least twice a month since last August. They know my voice when I call. It is not big things... Usually it is an ear infection or virus or strep throat. Buddy picks them up in daycare or Punkin gets them in the church nursery. So when folks ask me how the boys are sometimes I lie and say they are fine. Is that pitiful or what?
