This last weekend ushered in the back to school sickies. B and J have sore throats, and L has a head cold. It is one of those situations that brings on the inner battle between my swelly brain and my fragile heart.
Today you get a behind the scenes look at the action!
"Hey Meri, the boys are so sick. Maybe you should let them stay home from school today."
"Ummm...Meri...have you forgotten that L's blood sugar number pattern was reminiscent of the skyline of the Rockies yesterday..."
"Just call the school...right now. Let them sleep in."
"They are so flipping cute...you need to keep them home and cuddle them and love them and make them soup."
"Why doesn't anyone listen to me! Protect them from the elements! It might hit 80 degrees today! Keep them home!"
"It's like I'm not even here. The swelly brain gets all the attention."
Yeah, the brain won out today. But tomorrow is a new day, and a new battle. If I had to put my money on one of them tomorrow...I think I would double down on the heart.
