This is me. Ranting and a raving.

Is it just me,or do children always seem to get sick on the days you need them to be healthy? Arge. Andrew was scheduled to have his preschool screening for the next school year today, and knew he felt a little warm, but that wasn't going to stop us from going to our appointment. Who knows when we'd  be rescheduled for another one. Well, an hour and a half before his appointment... he vomited... a ton. It was pretty bad. I cleaned up the curdled milk that was all over the couch as he yelled at me because he didn't think it was fair for him to be sick. I quickly fired back and said "it's not fair to neither of us for you to be sick, dear." It's true. He is a grouchity old man and a big baby at the same time when he is ill and I'm the one who gets the joy of taking care of him not only because I'm the mama, but because I'm the only one he wants. Why do I have to be so darn great? It's a curse sometimes to be this fabulous. A shame, really...
Anyway I called the early childhood education program to reschedule and they said they were completely booked and they would call me if they had any cancelations. There goes my schooling plans for next year. I was on the verge of sobbing. Then the receptionist says "Oh wait. Looks like you're in luck, honey. We have a cancelation on the 17th. Would you like to take that spot?" "Yes, yes! We'll take it!" I can't begin to tell you how relieved I felt. This has been an uphill battle since we moved here. Who knew how hard it would be to get a child enrolled into preschool? Sheesh. 
Well I'm off to argue with Andrew about the reasons why he can't have eggs and milk for lunch today. One love y'all.

Awww! I feel bad for you...AND ANDREW! I HATE being sick. It makes me feel horrible(duh). I'm on his side though. Sometimes I feel like an old person.Imagine me...not being able to talk! What a horrible thing to imagine. Well, thats what I feel like when I'm sick! Hope Andrew gets better! C U soon!

Sick bebes are no fun. Especially vomitous ones.

But it is just a *little* bit funny that he's still so argumentative when he's sick. Just a little.

My boys came home from school with that stomach stuff today! But after they got home (and I changed my plans) they seemed fine! Arg.

Hope your little Andrew feels better! He's such a cutie! (don't you just love it when they throw up on the couch!?)
