Sick Day

I should have listened to my mom instinct.  When I got Quinn up for school yesterday he was particularly unhappy.  It crossed my mind to keep him home but I just moved on with the morning and took him to school and went to Spin class at the gym.  For some reason, I took my phone in to spin (which I rarely do) and accidentally placed it where I could see it (which I never do).  45 minutes in to class I saw my phone light up.  It was school. Quinn had thrown up and was in the nurses office.   When I got to school the poor guy looked pathetic.

Once we got home and got in our pajamas he seemed to make a quick recovery and ate 2 pieces of honey toast.   Then it was a play day at home.  The hot wheels are still getting alot of play and Quinn frequently asks us to 'make them even more awesome'.   These tracks get some frequent reconfiguration.

He loves to set up stuff for the hot wheels to knock over.

I'm just not one of those moms that loves to get down on the floor and play with their kid for hours.  That's just not me.  Never was, never will be.  But sometimes I come up with a clever idea like this domino tower for the cars to knock over.


Don said that when he was a kid, he and his brother would run the hot wheels tracks all over the house.  I can see that Quinn will be the same way.  I snapped this shot the other day when Marli was babysitting.

Quinn finished off his day with a bowl of yogurt and cereal and seemed to have made a full recovery.  It will be home on Tuesday and hopefully a healthy day.
