Jake stayed home sick today. No, don't worry. The child is perfectly fine. His best friend came down with some nasty virus last night, and I kind of freaked out. You know, the whole swine flu thing. So I spent a good deal of the night touching both boys' foreheads, just to make sure nobody was getting sick. And then this morning, Jake coughed. Yes, that's right, he coughed... a total of three times. And even as I called the school to report his absence, I knew it was due to the pollen that covers every surface in Virginia right now. But I kept him home anyway. Hey, don't judge! I already told you I kind of freaked out.
I'm back to normal, (mostly) calm Jen now. And yes, I know I've got issues. But my boys think that's great - they had a blast today!
