This kid missed a whole WEEK of school. Unheard of. Shocking. Unprecedented. The only good news - Jeff was home all week to take care of him and Miss Mina, who was out for 4 out of 5 school days.
four. Out of five. Days of school. My mind staggers when I begin to think about the monthly tuition bill that runs by express check automatically. Whether they attend or not.
The culprit responsible for all these missed days appears to be some sort of vicious little stomach bug that renders one nauseous and incapable of retaining any solid foods. Neither one of them had an appetite. Any food they did consume did not remain in their body for long. Ahem.
Slowly, over the course of the week... the two of them began to recover. Their appetites returned and the food remained within the confines of their body.
Which is a good thing. Because when dadddy is in charge, this is what passes for breakfast.
Kinda makes me wish I was five years old again.
By Saturday, there was definite improvement. They both managed to get outside, get some fresh air, play some t-ball, and boss Daddy around in the backyard.
The irony, of course, is that next week they will be home for spring break. Le sigh.
