Halloween was fantastic! The boys (well, Jack and Sully that is) managed to trick or treat from 3:30 until about quarter of 8. Granted they all stopped at a house dubbed "THE OASIS," so the dad's could take a pee and beer break and the kids could warm up for a bit.
After they returned home from trick or treating (even Ben did good, he lasted about an hour before Brian called me to come pick him up-impressive for little feet-), our house turned into the Halloween party house and soon enough we had three different families and about 6 or 7 or 8 additional kids.
I had quite the headache Sunday morning. Compliments of wine, that is.
Then the phone call came in. A flustered friend apologizing before explaining why they were apologizing.
Their offspring woke up in the night, sick. 103 fever, and headache.
Oink oink, yes, the poor thing had swine.
So, we've been watching the kids since then, but frankly I'm not that concerned.
Well, I used to be concerned, but that was before I knew that there were at least 4kids in Sully's class out with Swine.
So, if it should happen to prey on our little ones bodies, then we'll take it from there. Just hoping that if they do catch it, it'll be minor, like most of the kids in their school, and that nothing goes too wrong, especially with Ben's respiratory issues.
