No tears, but plenty of boogers

I just dropped Brianna off at school this morning and there were no tears! I don't like to "sneak away" with her because it's not like she's going to just not notice I left. It will take 2 minutes, but then she'll be crying uncontrollably when she DOES realize I left and she'll cling even harder the next time, knowing that I had snuck away... So I went in to her room with her, waited for her to put away her lunch box, said good bye, gave her a kiss, and left while the teacher helped get her jacket off. YAY! I'm so glad that she seems okay staying today. Hopefully the day will go as good as last Wednesday and she'll start enjoying going. This morning as I was getting her dressed and reminding her several times during the morning that today was a school day her answer was always "no". Hopefully that tune will change!

Micah's still not up to his good old self. He's got a constant runny nose, and he's also very raspy and congested. It seems that around 6pm the last two nights he's gone from an 'ok' day to upset, crabby, runny nose, cough, fever, and refusing food. The last 2 days he ate lunch hen nothing until the middle of the night after that.

Last night, unfortunately, I also wasn't feeling great and as I prepared all the kids' stuff for school and putting away their laundry that had run several loads during the day I ended up being up pretty late. Mike hadn't felt well all day and went to bed early (before I started feeling bad). So I finished up and went to bed to be awoken about 2 hours later by Micah. I gave him a bottle (that I'm glad I'd had the thought to make before I went to bed) and stayed while he drank it. Then back to bed and he went back to sleep. It took about 30 minutes to do all of that and about 4 hours later we repeated this all. Another 30 minutes up... Then only one more hour to sleep before the entire house woke up. Needless to say, I'm tired today! Thankfully Mike and I are both feeling much better, though, and Micah seems pretty good again this morning- except plenty of boogers...

  1. Did he happen to get an MMR shot recently? Sounds like an ear infection from an immunization. Just my non-medical opinion.

    For what it's worth, Sawyer still will say "NO" when I say school. (He started in August) But he LOVES it. Today I took his brother in with him to drop him off. He was so excited that Turner got to meet his teacher. It was very cute the way he acted. I think 'NO' is just the word that comes out.

    Hope you feel better soon. We had the 'crud' right after xmas. Not fun!
