Junior had perfect attendance at school this year…until today. Poor kid has had a low-grade fever since I picked him up last night. It’s not like he wasn’t going to blow it when we go to Florida in April anyway, but I have to tell you, I can’t BELIEVE he hasn’t missed a day of school since it started! The last day of January!
What a difference a few years make. Remember, this was the same child who needed ear tubes because he had so many ear infections as a baby (I’ll have to find the actual number…I think like a fisherman I keep embellishing. I want to say 23 by the time he was 15 months old, but that seems high. Then again, he had a lot of them. He was my little snot-nosed boy. Still is, actually, but a lot of it is allergies. And we’ve just been incredibly lucky this year as far as illnesses. Nothing so bad that he had to stay home. But he’s home with my mom today until I can get out of work. He did seem better this morning, but he still had a slight fever and you’re not supposed to send them to school like that, so I didn’t.
Oh, and as a hint of the weather to come, tonight we sign him up for the 2006 Little League season. C’mon, spring!
