My youngest was supposed to be spending the week with his grandparents. Yesterday, however, he called home and said he was sick. (I think it was the pound of chocolate candy he ate.)

I went and got him last night. He took a bucket to throw up in and went straight to bed. He's been fine today.

I think he was just missing us. Usually when he goes to my parents it is for a few days. Plus he normally has his brother with him. I guess it was too long by himself. His brother was with him the first three days, because I had to go out of town to help with our friend in the hospital. But then he was by himself with my folks for two days.

I'm glad he missed us.
