You know how most children love their momma when they aren't feeling good? Not my Gavin (4). That would go against everything about that boy...to do what is expected of him.
"OK Gavin. I know you don't feel good, but you have to be nice to Mommy. What song do you want me to sing?" I stalled checking the extra slow thermometer again.
Then I busted out some Bob Seger "Old Time Rock & Roll" in my best raspy voice. Not really sure where that came from but it was the first thing I thought of! He liked it, so I guess that's what matters.
