Oh, the Irony

Sunday morning as I was checking James into the nursery I heard talk of the stomach bug. It appeared that several of the workers were out because of this bug. After hushed whispers back and forth Mark and I decided to just keep James with us. And Mark stayed home with him Sunday night to protect his little stomach from this creature that had descended upon our church nursery. Well, looky looky, guess who has the stomach bug? James has gone from being sweet little sick, love and lay on momma boy, to demanding whiny toddler in a two hour period.

When he woke up from his nap he demanded two sippy cups to carry. I gave in on that because I know he is sick and it really doesn't matter. Then he wanted an apple. I had no apples. Wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then an orange. Same thing. Then a banana. We had eaten the last bananas earlier in the day. I told Tyler to run up to granny's and ask for a banana. He did and returned with a perfectly good banana. James looked at it, thought for a minute, and then threw it in the trash can.

I'm smiling and being sweet because I know he really is feeling bad, but it might be a forced smile by tomorrow.


  1. Oh my...what a difference 24 hours can make - I'm catching up on posts and read Monday and Tuesday together! Sorry your cutie is sick....maybe another 24 hours and the winds will have changed again - for the better! Patience dear friend :)

  2. Awww! Sorry to hear that little James is sick! I pray that he's feeling better overnight! Hang in there girl!

  3. Bless that little baby's heart! That is precious that he wanted fruit.

  4. Keri had the stomach bug too. It's epidemic up here. Poor little man - poor little man's momma.
