It has been a perfectly lovely day at home alone with my son...once I got over being woke up at the crack of dawn ...and he got over my refusal to get out of bed to take him to a wrestling practice that he has NOT been cleared to attend ...Sometimes there is just no joy in winning.
He has been able to concentrate enough to work on some of his homework. We experimented with a recipe I found on Spark and used homemade bread to make grilled chocolate sandwiches for lunch. We made other Christmas goodies to share with family and friends. We watched some cooking show that he loves on Netflix. We made plans for other fun things to do during Christmas break. Best of all, we just enjoyed each other's company, lots of laughs, and some good quality conversation. I feel very blessed!
Today was a good day! The Christmas service at church was so lovely. My Little Monkey has improved enough that he made it the whole day without a nap! He was even able to attend the Christmas party at his youth pastor's house. It's slow going but we see small improvements every day. I'll take every little bit we can get and feel thankful!
Another sleepless night. Papa Monkey and Little Monkey had coughing wars all night long. I threatened them both that if they did it again, I was going to stay at the Holiday Inn without them. How hard is it to take the cough medicine or some NyQuil??? Needless to say, I've been in Zombie state all day. Little Monkey ran a fever again and napped most of the day. One more day, then I can be home with him for 2 weeks instead of at work worrying about him.
