Tater Tot is back on his feet

It was about 5:00 a.m Sunday morning when little Tater Tot crawled in bed with me and hubby. Every square inch of his body was hot. A quick check of his temperature showed that it was exactly 102.5 degrees. I gave him a dose of Motrin and it came down quickly. However, the normally extremely active little six year old spent the entire day laying on the couch in his pajamas. The fever continued to spike each time the medicine wore off until it finally broke this afternoon. Yesterday when I told him he wouldn't be able to go to school today he said, "I know this is going to sound strange, but I actually want to go to school tomorrow because I kind of like school now." Well, that was music to my ears. But, he had to stay home today anyway. We've watched a LOT of Sponge Bob, played a few games, colored and snuggled the past two days. No mother likes to see her children sick, but I must admit, I did like taking care of my little Tater. The extra lovin' was an added bonus too!


  1. I hate to see my kids sick, but the extra cuddles and time spent is precious. Hope he is back to 100% soon!

  2. I agree I hate the kids being sick but I love the cuddle time that comes with it. Hope it doesn't spread through the family and everyone stays well!


Yippee! I love it when you leave me comments. Thanks a bunch. :)
