You may know that this weekend is my famly’s ThanksMas celebration. It’s our Christmas celebration, but we have it before my folks leave for Florida. (We call it ThanksMas because we held it on Thanksgiving the first year. Last year it was the first weekend in November … this year it’s before Halloween. I think we’ll be having Christmas in July before too long!)
Anyway, this is the one weekend each year where everyone spends the night at Mom and Dad’s house, and we have a blast. We’ve all been looking forward to it for months, especially Big Brother.
And yesterday, I got called to pick up Little Sister early because she’s sick. Not throwing up or anything like that, just a temp (about 101 yesterday) and somewhat lethargic. She has definitely improved since then, and has alternated between being somewhat lethargic – mostly right when she gets up from bed or nap – and being her usual active self, with an extra dose of whiny thrown in.
Why do kids always seem to get sick right before the big events? I think she’ll be fine by tomorrow evening – – but I’m not sure. I’ll be worrying about it until it’s time to leave.
Do your kids do this?
