Sick day

Edison threw up on the bus yesterday on his way home from school (Sorry, Mrs. Schufelt…) & woke up this morning saying he felt like he was going to throw up again, so we kept him home from school today. He spent the entire morning lieing on the couch  watching PBS kids (and begging to go back to school “Please…I Promise I feel better…I don’t want to miss my “T” party – a celebration of, you guessed it, the letter T — they were going to have tea & toast and they were all supposed to wear tee-shirts).  He is feeling better now and as we ate lunch he said to me, “You know, I really like Mr. Rogers.”  I said, “Yeah, me too.  Why do you like him?”  and he answered “Because he always reminds us that we don’t need to be afraid of going down the drain in the bathtub…That’s good.”

I had no idea that he had any fear of going down the drain.  But Mr. Rogers has been quietly reassuring him through the years that he’ll be OK.  I love that guy.  🙂

    I love Mr. Rogers too. When I was 6 I wrote him a letter saying that if he was ever in town he could stay with us, and he wrote back a very nice thank-you letter that included a signed picture.

    Oh, and I too am relieved that I don’t have to worry about doing down the drain! That would be scary.
