We're all on the mend here. No more fevers and no one has thrown up since (knocking REALLY hard on wood) two nights ago.
Last night I dreamt that I was pregnant. I must have been delirious with fever.
Savannah came home from school today with a project for her health class. She's to keep track of all the bad words (stupid, idiot, shut up, buttmunch) she hears this weekend. After being home for all of two hours, her notebook was full. I'm so proud.
Because Austin was puking and fevery yesterday, he stayed home from school today. So Austin lay there on the couch watching cartoons with his little brother and sister. Austin is the kind of kid who cannot watch cartoons without pointing out all the little idiosyncrasies he sees.
"Why doesn't Little Bear wear clothes? His parents wear clothes. Why does he run around naked all day?"
"Austin, it's a show about talking animals. A little girls hangs out in the forest with an assortment of talking wildlife and that's ok, but the fact that Little Bear doesn't wear clothes bothers you?"
"How can Spongebob go to the beach when he's already under water?"
"So the whole talking sponge, starfish, crab, and squid are ok? A squirrel who somehow built a dome under water and lives in the ocean is ok, but the fact that Spongebob goes to the beach under water is absurd?"
"Where are Max and Ruby's parents? Why aren't they ever on the show?"
"For real? The whole 'talking bunnies who can take a bus to the store by themselves' is fine and dandy, but the fact that their parents are never shown is troubling to you?"
"What on earth is Uniqua?!?!?!"
"OK. ya got me there. I have no idea what she's supposed to be! What on earth IS Uniqua?!"
