mr. cranky-pants

 

Our poor Buv is one sick little guy. He's got a serious sore throat (all red and blistery, yuck!). Its just a virus that happens to be going around, but it is miserable. We've had a hard time convincing him to eat anything. And when any of my children (and myself for that matter) don't eat on a regular basis they tend to be a bit irrational. Combine that with a fever and you've got yourself an unpleasant afternoon (or evening, or morning, or late night, you get the picture). Grace has been pretty nice about his situation. Apparently the first night he was sick she sat by his bed and prayed that he would get better. I thought that was really sweet, but of course sweetness doesn't last forever and during the day it was back to the usual bickering about possesions. Thankfully she's off to play at a friend's house this morning and Jimmy has succumbed to a morning nap. I'm hoping we're on the mend.

Well, if I had a harmonica, I'd probably be a little possessive too. Even if I didn't have a wicked sore throat.

Those gracisms are great! Emily has many of those as well.

Poor Buv. I hope he feels better. I'm wanting to see him again. He's so much bigger and grown up since the last time we saw each other!

Hey... I have a Mr. Cranky Pants too, but mine is about 29 years older than yours! :)

Get well soon Buv. I need to get myself a box like so I can hide when I don't feel well.
