It happened just this morning.
Today was Kaishon’s first meeting for student council.
He was SO excited.
Now he was sick yesterday.
Shivers and freezing and burning up sick.
He told me he was better.
He begged me to send him.
So, being the BRILLIANT mother that I am
(I know, I know)
I packed him in the car and took him to school.
1o minutes later the phone rang.
I had just gotten on the expressway
and was zipping towards Philadelphia.
It was the school nurse.
Kaishon was throwing up in her office.
I raced back to get him.
I almost cried when I saw my forlorn little figure
sitting on the sick bench.
He told me with great sadness
that he had only heard 2 introductions before feeling ill.
He raced out of the meeting
and into the nurse.
He is so sad about missing the meeting.
All day he asked me what he missed.
I told him he will go next month and find out.
One month until the next meeting.
To Kaishon this is a lifetime!
I am leaving for Dallas in the morning.
I haven’t flown without Kaish in many years.
I am nervous.
And I ordered my ticket online.
Do I just go to the desk and tell them that?
I have NO idea!
None at all.
Both the boys are sick and don’t want me to go.
Even my Daddy told me I didn’t have to go
tonight when I called to find out
how to get to the airport.
( I am going to get lost!)
I used a Writer’s Workshop prompt tonight.
Go read some more great stories!
Where did you fly the last time you flew?
