I got to spend the whole day with this kid yesterday.
On Monday night Dave asked me if I had gotten used to Conner being gone all day. I told him I was so used to it that I was worried the next day he may NOT be gone all day. I had errands to run, cleaning to do, you know mom stuff…..and I knew if Conner was home most of those things wouldn’t happen. Sure enough, Tuesday morning the sore throat and fever continued, so I had myself TWO buddies for the day. The thing is, it wasn’t nearly as “awful” as I thought it would be. Conner was so sick that he just layed around and then slept all afternoon. He didn’t bug his brother; in fact he helped him more than usual (opening containers, holding things, etc.). I hate seeing my kids sick, but he sure was sweet!
And today I miss him!
