Munchkins Make Me Feel Better

So my normally healthy four-year old has had a rough four weeks. He has been sent home from school on three separate occasions with fevers and has been home during each of those episodes for two and three days at a time.

Tom and I have gotten to spend a lot of quality time with Austen (well in between trying to keep our day jobs), and we certainly relish that but it's getting a little tiresome to be constantly battling a raging fever. Luckily, the most recent go round with the fever was a less than 12-hour show but he still couldn't go to school the next day as they have a rule you must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning.

At any rate, Austen, now the picture of perfect health, looks at me after Tom takes Peyton to school that morning and says..."Munchkins make me feel better!" As in mom, you need to go to the Dunkin Donuts across the street and buy me some munchkins to eat since I am at home with you today!

Needless to say I didn't. But we did walk to Starbucks later and I bought him a hot chocolate!
