yet again, we are all sick. T turned 5 at 12:18 am on monday; at 12:45 am he started pucking. at about 1:15 i joined him. he told his dad that the pukes (that's what we call it) are just yucky boogies that taste fairly bad. poor kid. he was really good-spirited about the whole thing. he got lots of phone calls and a visitor, and he loved all his presents. i got him a wristwatch whose dial is a mesh capsule for collecting and viewing bugs. it's called watch-a-bug.
anyway, we're hoping to be back to school and normal life by tomorrow.
