This month has been a complete whirlwind. The new year started, and February is here. I'm sorry what...what happened in January? Oh yeah, the kids went off track and Hunter got mono. We spent four grueling days with fevers ranging between 103-105 degrees before we got the diagnosis.
With the diagnosis came the following instructions, "You will need to significantly reduce his activities for the next two weeks. I don't want him to participate in any sports or outside activities."
I chuckled half to myself and half out loud. Our pediatrician glanced up and said, "No, really, no activity of any kind for two weeks." I'm sorry have you met my son. Yeah, the six year old BOY! Good luck with that!
I found myself thankful for the waves of exhaustion that came over him daily for the first week. But then the exhaustion started to diminish as the illness began to ebb. Oh Dear! Now what! I know workbooks. Yeah, right!
My sister suggested to Hunter that he should get a brave souvenier. I'm sorry...what...I'm sure this was payback from the suggestion I made to Ashliana that the tooth fairy paid $10 for the first tooth you lose.
Lesson learned at the cost of the new Indiana Jones Lego set and $59 later. Yeah, I said $59. Never, I repeat never, agree to a lego set without first knowing not only the price but also the number of pieces. I spent 3 hours constructing the chamber of horrors for Hunter complete with snakes, skulls and spiders-gross. Like I said, lesson learned.
We are now healthy, happy and rested. Oh yeah, and broke!
