Sick now for three days. A stubborn head cold. It always amazes me how kids deal with being sick. They just keep plugging along, trying to pretend nothing is wrong, while I just want to curl up in bed and feel sorry for myself. Why is that? Right now he's negotiating the day. I've already made it clear he needs a nap since the last two nights have been terrible sleeps and he needs rest to get better. Here is the deal he negotiated, because really, can you say no to a pathetic little sicky? Absolutely not. First we have lunch.....at MiMi's.....then he gets to "work" with grandpa for a while, then he's willing to take a nap. However, all us parents know, when nap time comes, more deals will be presented to me. Anything to get out of a nap. Anything to not miss out on a single second of his life, no matter how tired and sick. His determination to enjoy life, no matter what it throws at him, is a lesson I need to learn.
