The kids were really good in church yesterday: too good. Then I noticed Tiger Lily was feeling a bit warm. A few hours later at home, I found Red Chief laying in the middle of the hard kitchen floor with an uneaten Halloween candy bar at his side.
I don't need to take their temperature or visit the doctor to know they're sick: all I need to do is look at the couch and see my two poor, lethargic children drooped over, laying absolutely still with their eyes half-open. I can hardly think of anything more pitiful than two usually active children who don't move.
I read a few Curious George stories out loud, but then my voice started to go. After that, Red Chief enjoyed listening to some audio books. He chose:
- The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle
- Mercy Watson to the Rescue
- Mercy Watson Rides Again
- The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse
