Well, he's still sick. His fever came back and his whining started up again. So when it was time for bed he said he didn't want stories (like we usually do every night). He wanted to watch a movie. Remember I said I brought him downstairs and turned on the t.v. so early this morning? He'd been watching it pretty much all day since then and now he wanted a movie. But I didn't want to pick a battle with a sick kid, so I agree and told him he could watch it in mommy and daddy's room while I was on the treadmill, which is also in our room. Out of all the great kid's movies we have, he picks "Dora's First Trip", which isn't even a movie, but just a bunch of the shows on one disc. So he falls asleep after the first show, I am on the treadmill, not wanting to stop to switch the t.v., so I end up watching the rest of Dora during my hour run. The sad part is, I was actually answering the questions that backpack was asking...... not out loud, of course, but I was really following along with the show. That is the happening life of this 30 something mother!

Today Kevin had a sick day. He woke up around 5:45 yelling for me saying his head hurt really bad. He had a fever, so I gave him tylenol and he came downstairs with me and we turned on the t.v. As soon as the medicine started working he was feeling better, but we still kept him home from school. Garrett actually stayed home with him because Fridays are one of my two days of work. I don't work, I don't get paid....so it was better for Garrett to stay home. Anyway, Garrett kept up with the medicine all day and Kevin felt pretty good all day. So when I got home I decided to test to see if he was still sick and I didn't give him more tylenol when it was time.
