What a weird couple of days!

Pin It Monday was a good day. I made plans for Tuesday, everything was good.

Tuesday I got up and felt a little weird. Not terribly so, just a little. I got ready to go and got Brendan ready for Mother's Day Out. In the car on the way there, I felt a little more weird. In the car on the way back, I hit the "I'M GOING TO BE SICK NEED TO BE HOME IMMEDIATELY" mode. I'll spare you any more details on that, other than sending a big "thank you" to every single one of you who offered to bring me crackers and sprite! Heather took Brendan home from Mother's Day Out and the girls pretty much took care of themselves while I laid in bed all day long. Then Jessica took the girls to dance.

Can we all just give a big thank you that stomach issues usually only last about 24 hours? Thankfully this was even less than that, and I was feeling mostly human again by bedtime last night.

Then this morning, Brendan woke up very whiny and clingy. This is not typical for him. He usually wakes up happy and ready to go for the day. He actually cried because the blue cup was dirty and he had to drink from the red cup. Cried pitifully. So, I assumed he was getting sick. Then he perked up and was fine, so I assumed he was not getting sick. Then, when I was getting lunch together, I realized how quiet he was. He had gone to bed. That is NEVER a good sign, so I assumed he was getting sick. He slept for over two hours. I made sure we had tylenol, got on the "we're not going to church tonight" comfy clothes and prepared for him to miss MDO tomorrow. Then he woke up. He was FINE. He woke up, demanded his chocolate milk and peanut butter and jelly sandwich and jumped off the furniture while I made them for him. Obviously, he was just tired. Unfortunately, since he had a long nap today, it's now 9:30 pm and he's still going strong.

I would think that, Brendan being child #3, I'd have a good idea as to whether he's actually sick or not, rather than just being tired. Guess not. He will be tickled to not have to miss Superhero day at Mothers Day Out though!

(You may have guessed that I'm sitting here, usually typing things for my blog right about now, and have realized that I really don't have anything interesting to say today. So, you get a play by play of my last couple of days. I know you're thankful.)

I'm glad you're better. That's the most miserable feeling.

As for recognizing sickness, X is a completely different "sick child" than F. X can be almost dying, and he'll tell me he's fine-let's-go-to-school. F, on the other hand, is "too sick for school" at least twice a week (uh.huh.). Who knows?
