Well, I did manage to keep him hydrated, through popsicles and vitamin drinks. And, thanks to Tylenol chewables and children's ibuprofen, we were able to keep that pesky fever at bay most of the time. The next line of business was to keep a very sick little boy occupied, when he was awake. We drew pictures, and played with little army men (which brought back very fond memories of my Papaw reading The Land of Counterpane by Robert Louis Stevenson, when I was a kid.)
While Dash was sleeping the hours away on Friday, the other kids and I decided to make him a paperdoll of himself.
Then we posed the doll in the flowers, above the couch where he was sleeping, and waited for him to wake up and notice.
This video was taken after Fred spent half an hour playing "Crack the Egg" and the "1-2-3 Game." These kids totally wear us out!!!
