You know your child is sick when...

You have stopped at the convenience store after school for the purpose of buying him a treat. You are standing with him in the candy aisle, asking him what he wants, and he says,

"I want to get a treat mom, but my tummy hurts."
"Do you want to pick one out now and we'll save it for later, when your tummy feels better?" you say,
"No, lets just wait." he says.

And so you walk out of the candy aisle and the store, empty handed.


  • TOTALLY!!! My kids have turned down candy before and it's like...what's going on...

    Or once I knew Andrew was sick when at his sixth birthday party he just sat on the couch watching his friends run, wrestle, and go crazy. A few minutes later it was upchuck city and the kids had cake without him. Sad!

    What's the end of YOUR story, marian?...did you make it home in time?

  • he actually hasn't thrown up at all, but he's asleep in his room right now. And as he stopped taking a nap about a year ago, that's another good sign!
