The woes of a sick boy...

Evan has been home sick for the last two days. He has a terrible cough and a yucky nose. Every time he coughs, his throat hurts.
I guess guys start out young. It is a known fact that when a guy gets sick, they turn into babies. They can't do anything, they don't have energy, they want to just sit and veg or sleep. When a woman gets sick, she is expected to still take care of the house, the kids, the dogs, the farm animals, all the running around, making dinner, etc. You get the drift, right?
Well, Evan is like that too. I really thought I could train him to be a little different, but he is whiny and grouchy. The one thing I will say about him is that after two days, he has finally gotten bored with just watching cartoons. He wants to play and run around, but I say no. If you are sick, you need to chill out, right?
It is tough being the mom. I am no fun and don't let him do anything! Sound familiar to any of you?
Enjoy your day!! Just think; you could have a grouchy guy at home like me!!!

Poor baby! Maybe he needs his Grandma to come and harass him a little. That should make him want to get well so he can get out of there!!!
