Fun Monday - Kids Say

Sorry this is so late. The subject of today's Fun Monday actually happens to be the reason.
Mariposa is hosting and she wants to know what funny stuff we've heard our kids say!

We've been battling some pretty nasty stuff here and up until yesterday, counted ourselves lucky to have missed it.

Guess what?

Saturday, ZBoy came home from a spend-the-night complaining of a headache. He and his father then went off to watch basketball with our other son, and when he came home, said his throat was itchy.

I got out the thermometer - 101.8.

Ice packs, motrin, and a tepid bath followed. And while getting ready for his tepid bath, Z called out the bathroom door:

GEE MOM, EVEN MY CROTCH IS HOT!

I immediately slapped my hand over my mouth so I wouldn't laugh out loud, and once I got control over my ill-timed mirth, told him that was why he needed a cool bath - to cool down everything.

Unfortunately, the effects were fairly short-lived. He woke me at 5am by talking in his sleep while standing next to my bed. I got him back to his bed and took his temperature. 103.6.

I called the doctor's office when they opened and they got him in this morning. It is NOT strep, thank goodness. But it is a virus and he can't go back to school until at least Wednesday (IF his temperature goes away - no luck yet).

And of course, now I seem to have the same thing. bummer.

It's not a very FUN Monday. In fact, mostly it's just a Monday.

Hopefully next week will be more fun for me!!!

Oh big hugs, I know just how you feel. We have had much the same around here the past two weeks with sore throats that just will not shift.

As for being late, I am also guilty and have still not written my post. I am seriously thinking I might need a blog break for a while.

Get well quick. Mwah xxxx

I feel your pain....both of my girls have what the doc says is the flu - high fever, headache, lethargy. So far so good for me. Sorry to hear that you are feeling it too. Feel better soon.

I'm totally stuck at the crotch comment- that's hilarious!

In a few years, when he starts dating, the hot crotch comment will be even funnier (or, totally devoide of humor-I guess you could go either way with that!) Miss ya! Feel better- hopefully you don't have the hot crotch fever!
