On pyromania, sweets, and self-realizations that should have hit me earlier
love commemorated

The con (attempted, not successful)

Me, lying in bed, groggy.  Chance bounces in and snuggles under the covers.

Me, mumbling: "Good morning, kiddo."

Chance: "MORNING!  I love you, Mommy!"

Me: "I love you, too. So... how are you feeling this morning?"

Chance: "Good!"

Me: "Really?  No stuffy nose?"

Chance: "Nope."

Silence and snuggling.

Me: "How does your throat feel?  Do you have a sore throat?"

Chance: "No, it feels good!"

More silence in a warm, warm bed.

Me: "How about your ears?  Are they kind of achy?"

Chance: "Nope! I feel good!"

Me, groaning.  Because I had all of those and somedays it's easier for everyone to be sick than to get up to drop Mr. Healthy McHealthy off at school. 


I shouldn't complain, though. I haven't been sick since Thanksgiving. I figure two months free in the middle of winter and surrounded by boogery kindergartners is a pretty good run, right?  *grumble*

I'm a big fan of the 'everybody be sick at the same time' business because inevitably, I'm always the last one of the house to get whatever has gone around, and by then, the ability to feel bad for me is lost on the others.

Hope you're feeling better soon!


It's funny, when my kids lead a conversation with "You know what Mommy, I love you" it's usually NOT a good thing.

I like your version better... snuggles with NO chaos.



A very "good run"! I substitute-taught all grades for several years, but kindergarten only once! The main reason I didn't do that again was not the lack of a set schedule of classes (I have to have a set schedule of reading, writing, 'rithmetic, etc.)--but the monstrous cold I developed! The children were wonderful--but they all wanted to hug me (little children seem to see me as a "gentle giant"), and that gave me one of the worst colds I've ever had in my life!


So the next lesson for the kid could be "You'll make Mommy feel better if you do..." What they don't learn in school they need to learn at home. Feel better!
