Kaden woke up yesterday morning in our bed. He had gotten up in the night with leg cramps, something he seems to get pretty frequently. I helped him get ready for school and he seemed so tired and mellow--very unlike him. I asked him if he was okay.
Yeah. I think I am okay, but a little bit sick. I should probably skip school today.
Are you sure buddy? I will let you stay home if you don't feel well, but I don't want you to be sad later because you miss your friends and teacher. So, are you sure you don't want to go to school?
Well I DO want to go to school, very bad, but my body is telling me 'no, stay home.'
Yeah, it's saying to me 'I just need to heal.' Mom, it just wants to rest and heal, so I need to let it.
Okay, well then it's probably a good idea to stay home and rest today.
I smiled about that little comment all day. He ended up with a fever and just wasn't himself. We played and built the coolest things with k'nex. I loved the extra time with my boy and really kept thinking to myself, I love this. He is so much fun. Thankfully, he bounced out of bed this morning ready to take the world on by storm, just like he always does.
