My parents are scheduled to arrive for a visit today,which is usually the signal for someone in our household to come down with an infectious disease. We were early this time, though: Brayden caught some sort of virus last weekend that had him feverish, coughing and vomiting for a couple days. (A full half of his kindergarten class was out sick this week…ugh.) At one point this week he fell asleep at 5:30 p.m. and slept right through until 7 a.m. — and woke up feeling much better. It’s amazing what 14 hours of sleep can do.
The rest of us also fell ill, naturally, but the worst appears to be over, and we’re ready for company. Plus the sun’s out today. Things are looking up.
