Big Buddy was home from school today with a mouth full of canker sores (a side effect of a new med) and general, "I'm not feeling myself today." He has hardly spoken or eaten all week long.
We spent 5 hours this morning getting from home to the doctor and back again.
There were 2 needles.
There were tears.
Fast forward to 2:32. Sister came home from school and commenced with stuffed animal potty jokes. Her specialty!
Calvin: "Mommy, I feel so much happier now that Ruby came back! She's the best sister ever. She always cheers me up. I would never want a different girl than this girl."
The codeine may have helped, but I'm putting my money, as always and forevermore, on our Girl.
