We got the sickies

Last week Taylor was home for 2 days sick. This week Aiden was home sick. I always struggle with when it is an appropriate time to take them to the Doctor. Now, with the H1N1/Flu scare and craze, I don't want to take them to the doctor to pick up any more germies. So Saturday in a matter of about an hour Aiden went from no fever to about 104. It scared me. With some Ibuprofen and some snuggling ( I like to think it helps) it came down to about 102. He was lethargic most of the time, but leave it to Aiden to make a situation comical. In the midst of it all, this is how I found him on the potty entertaining himself. Where does he get this stuff? I love his spirit. He loves to entertain, and to find humor in everything. What a nut!

It has been raining this week, I mean the whole week. My children are crazy, I am crazy, and the 25 children that I teach everyday are crazy. I mean I am all for a nice rain storm, but seriously enough is enough.

Today the kids and I went to my mom and dad's house, which includes driving down a very windy, very wet canopy road. As we were leaving I told Aiden that we should say a prayer to God to ask him to keep us safe on the way home. This is pretty much how it went: "Dear God (hands folded, eyes shut tight), please push the rain button and turn off the rain. We are all done. Oh and keep us safe, Amen.) Amen brotha!
