SICK boy!
This is the first time that one of my kids has been really sick. We've done fevers, sick tummies, and all of that before, but that's all been pretty random and short lived. Well, Ethan caught a yucky bug that has made him so, so sick. It's so sad! This was the 3rd full day of it, and his fever is still a burnin'! I tried to take a picture of him, but he was not having any of that, so I will share his funny quotes from the week:
at dinner: "mom, sick boys can't eat green beans."
at bedtime: "mom, sick boys can't get a spankin' when they talk in bed at night."
when Ben and I woke him and gave him some more medicine late at night:
"Daddy, I'm still alive!"
random: "the germs are fighting and bonkin' their heads inside of me
and hurting me!"
to grandma on the phone: "the germs are killing my body!"
when Ben told him he could not go to church: "daddy, your not my favorite player anymore!"
Well, with us being stuck in the house, we decided to celebrate St. Patties day between the cold compresses, ibuprofen, juice, movies, and popsicles. We made green cookies and a couple of loves of Irish Soda bread! Yummy!
Hopefully, he will be better soon, but that's not the end because I put Kate to bed tonight with a FEVER! GRRR!

Hope it gets better soon, as far as sickness around your house. I've been there! I used to be sick all the time until my daughter learned this great program at her daycare. It's called Germy Wormy Germ Awareness for Germ Transportation Vehicles, ages 2 - 7. It really works to teach children in a mom-invented, fun and drug-free way to both avoid AND keep from spreading germs. Now we no longer play the "pass the germs" game, and there is less illness going around the family.

Give kids a PLACE to give their germs instead of you!

He is such a hoot!!!! I'm still laughing at the comments. So sorry that he's been so sick though - no fun! And I hope little Kate is feeling better. Keep those funny stories coming! :)

I'm SORRY! It's so hard to see them sick and to be soooo tired taking care of them! I'm praying for you! way to capture those quotes- they're GREAT!
