Number two (nearly-5-year-old) is poorly with a fever, sore throat and is being sick. Oh dear. So today I am looking after him. I don't really know what to do after taking his temperature, (it was 39.7 - eeek) apart from keep him drinking lots of water and resting him up. This is now the third child that has stayed home ill with me. I assumed that he would get sick at some point and although I feel very sorry for him, he is an excellent ill person. He isn't complaining at all and is really being very sweet - it makes a change from his normal self. That said, I really hope he makes a fast recovery as it's horrible seeing him poorly.
