You know it’s bad when they’re too tired to play video games.
This Christmas vacation has been less than ideal, with sniffles, coughs, fevers and all. I’ve spent the better part of the break checking temperatures, administering meds, getting glasses of water, and clearing away used kleenexes. Such good times. On the bright side, we have been reading The Hobbit, and read The Little Prince too. The kids were feeling slightly better today, thank goodness, but we’re not there yet. Said Ethan:
“My throat hurts.”
“I know… I’m sorry, sweetie.”
“… Do you think I need more fiber or something?”
