Poor little Emmy was throwing up all night. She woke me up at 3 and I helped her get cleaned up and back to bed. Then she kept throwing up until morning. So she stayed home from school with a little fever. She fell asleep in my bed all afternoon.
After delivering treats, Ashton went out to play with his friends. They had a snowball fight and Ash got hit right in the eyeball. Sweet little Annie, not even kidding, ran to turn on the fire for him, walked him over to get him warmed up, and hugged and patted him, telling him she was soooo sorry he got hurt and asking him if he was okay.
I thought Ash was being a LITTLE bit dramatic. He cried for a long time and I let Annie do all the mothering. However, when he finally let me look at his eye while we were eating dinner, I finally saw that it was indeed very hurt. It was all swollen and his eyeball had been scratched pretty badly. Doh! I’m a bad mom. It was Pack Night tonight, the Christmas Caroling around the neighborhood activity. It was straight up FREEZING. So I was glad that Josh wasn’t home yet. I had to stay home with sick Emmy and send Ashton off to scouts all by himself. When Josh got home, he and Ashton went shopping for Ash’s presents for the family.
