Ugh, I hate watching my boy be so sick. This morning we tried. We really did. We made a great big effort to get him off to school for his awards ceremony and field trip to the mall. But we should have taken the bad bout of tummy trouble he had after breakfast as a sign to just stay home. Poor dude. After he got sick he seemed okay so we showered him and dressed him up in his school T-shirt. But he just couldn't do it.
I could tell when my mom (yep, Grandma is his teacher) called his name for his citizenship and honor roll awards that he wasn't going to make it through the day. Even from the back of the room I could tell his eyes still look sunken in and he has none of his regular Henry energy. His face has a shadow on it that's not normally there.
He got his awards, he smiled for a picture. But I brought him home to go back to bed. We're going to have to give this thing another day.
