Jack stayed home from school today. Stuffy nose, aches and a fever of 103. I was worried because of the fever and he slept a lot, very uncharacteristic of any of my children. Needless to say I felt better when I walked into his bedroom and he had this re-enactment of King-Kong happening. I knew if he was playing he was feeling better.
Nonna even joined in the fun helping Kong swat the multiple aircraft out of the sky. This proved to be a much more complicated version of Kong since the aircraft carrier was anchored only feet away armed not only with fighters but long range missiles.
Not to worry, Jack will be going back to school tomorrow. The fever is down and while the cough still lingers he has spoken the magic words. "I'm bored."
