The boys had parent/teacher conferences today and I told them that if they were good, we would get courtesy cones at Arctic Circle. They were great and so we did (best .42 cents I have spent all week!) Usually Avery is the first to choose her flavor of "dip" but when it came time to order she said that she didn't want one. That should have been my first clue to just hurry home-Avery not wanting ice cream spells WARNING! Shortly after arriving home she came to me asking for a bowl. Let's just say I barely made it...but we were on the hard wood floors-not the carpet...phew! I laid her down on her bed and she has been sick ever since. I told her she could call me in whenever she needs me. The last time I went in I asked her what she needed and she sweetly said, "Mommy, I just need you."
(And yes, that is Twyla-I am having flashbacks to the Velveteen Rabbit.)
