Both kids were under the weather last evening. The air has been so polluted after the navratri visarjan fire crackers and Nish has been especially miserable as he has allergic asthma…so the poor fellow was wheezing and coughing and throwing up last evening. Sid decided to keep his twin company by also throwing up (don’t know how he managed that because he was not coughing or wheezing or sick). We had to use the nebulizer twice last night for Nish and i let the boys sleep in till about 7:30 this morning. I had decided they could just stay home but Nish woke up and very loudly announced that he wanted to go to school. Since he was fine and not wheezing in the morning I decided they could go.
I was dreading Sid’s whines about not going to school but surprisingly he said nothing. He even spoke about what his teacher would say about his haircut! The car drive was peaceful…still no whines…
And then, once we were in school, Sid and Nish both hopped out quite happily and waved goodbye.
It was such a happy feeling to drive out of the school gate without the heart wrenching sounds of Sid’s crying. It gave my day a jumpstart and I am so happy to see that he is finally settling in!!!
