I am home from work today because my newly graduated 'adult' son is sick. So sick that he didn't want to be home alone. There is something very lonely about puking (or dry heaving in his case), without someone around to make sure you don't die.
It is kind of nice knowing that your child still needs you, even if it is just when they are sick.
Now I get to look forward to sharing this nasty virus to the rest of my kids. Could be a really long week. Let's hope mommy's flu shot works and I can stay strong.
Being a parent is not for the weak of heart - or stomach in this case.
