The boys are both sick! Quinn is much worse off than Cooper at this point, but I suppose that could change any minute. Last night the boys both quickly became sick. Cooper fell asleep on the sofa (sitting up) at 3pm and didn't wake up until 6. Even then he wasn't really awake, he just sat at the table during dinner and didn't eat anything. Everytime I asked him if he was all done he would say "all done" and then not go anywhere. When I realized he was still sitting there after dinner was over I made Matt go carry him over to the sofa to cuddle...he didn't move the rest of the night. Quinn was just very whiney last night and not very hungry. We gave them both some Motrin and put them to bed.

I had already decided no school today. When I went in to get Cooper around 10 am he was just laying there on his bed looking sad. As I got him dressed he started saying something over and over, like he was asking a question. Turns out he was saying "Quinn"! I think he was asking where Quinn was because usually he watches him get on the bus every morning and today he slept through it. After some breakfast, some gatorade, and an ice pop Cooper was almost back to his usual self. Quinn on the other hand slept until 3 pm and even then I had to work a little to wake him up. He definately had a fever and was a total mess, but I forced him to eat some applesauce spiked with Motrin and drink a lot of gatorade. He was very excited to see his banana but he couldn't seem to eat it. It seemed like it hurt him and he got mad and threw it on the floor. Poor Baby! I put him on the sofa in front of the Wiggles and he was happy. He kept trying to stand up and dance but obviously it was too much for him and he would sit back down. Then after about 30 minutes his fever must have broken because he took off running around like nothing was wrong at all! Weird.

So we are surviving (for now anyway), there is no school on Friday so everyone is taking Thursday off to get healthy for the next week. Bye Bye, perfect attendence...
