This weekend is homecoming weekend. It started with a parade tonight that ended at the football field. One of my boys is in the parade because he plays freshman football, and my other son is playing the football game right now. I have gone to every game possible and was looking forward to this one. I had to stay home because I am so sick! I feel really bad that I am missing my son play:( I actually can hear the game sitting here in my living room as the football feild is across the feild in my back yard. I am feverish and coughing and coughing so figured that noone would want me at the game spreading my germs. I fell so bad! Ever miss something that is important to your children due to sickness?

I'm sorry Sunshine! that stinks that you missed it. I bet others would be glad that you weren't there spreading your germs. Most people don't think about things like that. I hope they played extra good for you! :) Not yet-- I haven't missed anything major due to sickness.... Knock on wood! I don't want to start.

Thanks for responding Kris. For some reason my responses aren't coming to my email so I am behind. Yep, they won the homecoming game! I have been off and on sick for about 3 weeks now and I am getting tired of it! Every time I start feeling better, a football game comes up, I sit in the freezing cold and start coughing again the next day. The things we do to enjoy our children:)

Hi sunshine. One year I missed CHRISTMAS because I was so sick in bed with the flu! I stayed in bed all day. My son was about 5 at the time and my parents came over and picked him up and took him to their house to celebrate Chrsitmas with teh family. It was a terrible day for me!

That is a horrible Christmas. I know we as parents hate to miss important things in our kids lives.
