Sicky-Poo




In kindergarten, Drew learned that if he was sick, he got to stay home from school. My beautiful, honest child began to take advantage of my compassion and suddenly had a belly ache at least once a week. So, to curve this newly-forming habit, Sean created the "sick rule." If he stays home from school because he's sick, he can't play and has to stay in bed until school is over. Amazingly they belly aches went away! Today though, the sick rule hasn't phased him. He has been asleep in my bed (daddy's rule didn't say who's bed. hee hee) all day. Poor kid! He's so routine... to bed at 8pm and up at 6am every morning...he hasn't slept outside of those times in years. Well, except the night he stayed with Kevin, but that's a whole story of it's own. Anyway, I sure hope he feels better soon.

Ok, I am laughing right now and not because Drewbie is sick. When I first read the title of this post I thought it said, "STiNcky-Poo" and I couldn't figure out what that had to do with him being in your bed asleep. I really should learn to read some day. he...he...

We made that same rule years ago, and it still applies when our kids are sick.
I hope Drew feels better!
