Well, the dark cloud continues to hover over our house. D's beloved birthday tree frog was found face down in his water dish this morning. He has been sobbing all day. He said he was able to hold it in during school, but the moment he got into the car, the sobbing started again. He buried him the backyard by himself in a maroon box marked "Hokie." D is so sad. The death of a pet is something most kids have to go through, but it seems like events of this nature have a more profound impact on our kids now. It's just another sadness, another loss, another reminder that bad things can happen.
L has also been throwing up on and off since 4:30 am Sunday morning. We started this morning with him puking all over himself in his carseat as we pulled into school this morning. Lovely way to start the morning...a dead tree frog and 4 year old vomit in every groove of a 4 point harness carseat. I also have a huge deliverable due tomorrow for work. Ugh. Ugh indeed.
