A new kind of thermometer!

I was taking Aiden's temperature tonight. I do this quite often. Fever goes with having TRAPS. I tend to try to keep a close eye on his temperature, because it can spike so quickly, to 106 or more. It's scary when it does that. So, if he feels the slightest bit warm, I grab the ear thermometer and see where we are at temperature wise.

Usually I take his temperature and he asks, "what does it say Mommy?" And then, I'll tell him, "98.8" (which is what it was tonight). But tonight the conversation was a little bit different. It went like this:

Aiden: What does it say Mommy?
Me: (I opened my mouth but I could not get a word in edgewise)
Aiden: It says I need to watch a movie and eat popcorn!!!

When his Daddy and I stopped laughing we popped in the movie and Daddy popped the popcorn! Oh my silly boy!

Kids say the cutest things. Keep a record to read when they are bigger. It will bless you and them too. You just made a memory for all of you as you wrote this down. Take my word for it, those reading days will be here before you know it.

Hey Angie, you calculate the temperature, OK?

Hope all is well. Carrie and I are moving to San Francisco on April 18 for job relocations. We're looking forward to it. Come see us sometime!
