A reason to be cheerful

Jack just said: "I want a carrot for my snack today!"

Jack can write with either hand. When he uses his right hand he writes from right to left. When he uses his left hand he writes from left to right.

He doesn't seem to favor one hand over the other when eating, so it'll be interesting to see if things stay this way.

A few days ago he sounded out and spelled Cambodia completely by himself. His version was off by two letters: canbodea.

Feeling hot hot hot

Since Jack started preschool in September he's had colds and the flu, but never a fever. Until last week. I think it's safe to say we saved the best for last (ha).

Tuesday evening Jack was very tired and went to sleep early. He slept for 12 hours and woke up with a fever. The next 3 days felt like driving through Texas -- you know you'll get through it eventually, but it just keeps going on and on. Our days were filled with tantrums, crying, everything just plain wrong, no appetite, and miserable tiredness. The only saving grace was the brief and fleeting return of a daily nap.

Yesterday Jack made it through the day without napping, although he was very tired in the afternoon. He went to sleep just past 6 and slept 12 hours again, but woke up cool and happy. Let's hope his immune system is recovered and we put the cold and flu season behind us once and for all.
