Snuggly Sickies & Shel Silverstein

Today, Lubby is home sick...with the awful, croupy cold his sister had during vacation. She is off to school...and we are all snugly here...reading! Here's one of my favorites...
The Little Boy and the Old Man by Shel Silverstein
Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon."
Said the old man, "I do that too."
The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants."
"I do that too," laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, "I often cry."
The old man nodded, "So do I."
"But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems
Grown-ups don't pay attention to me."
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
"I know what you mean," said the little old man.

I wondered if he'd catch it when they said it was a virus with Emma. Too bad. Poor baby. Love, Grandma D.

Poor Caleb. We will pray he will get better real soon and mom and dad do not get it next.
