Aaron came into my bed at 5AM this morning with a fever. It wasn't high, but I knew he didn't feel well at all. Less than an hour later Emma came along with a fever as well and complaining of a very sore throat. My boss has been out sick all week with Flu and Strep so I know something has been going around.
So I called the school to let them know they would be out and told my office I would be working from home today. One of the many great things about my company is that flexibility.
We all slept late first - sometimes the extra rest is the best thing. Neither complained about laying down as they didn't have energy for anything else.
And I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese. Yesterday the kids finished a pot of soup all on their own - today, though Emma barely ate half a bowl and Aaron didn't eat a fourth of his sandwich.
I think Aaron got the worst of it - Emma's fever has stayed low and she hasn't complained much more about her throat. Aaron on the other hand got sick and threw up. He past out shortly after that and slept very well.
Emma never did go back to sleep, but she hasn't been up much today.
I hate seeing them so lethargic, but I am glad they rested today - I hope that it'll help get this out of their system. I've been sitting on the bed with them all day with my laptop and surprisingly did get a lot of work done. T-ball starts back up for Aaron Wednesday so I really hope this is just a 24hr bug that is going to be out of their system by morning. He's past out again now, snoring in my bed, and Emma is kicked back in the recliner. Anxious to see them bounce back to themselves soon.
