Symptoms displayed by Chloe, keeping us home today:
Loss of appetite

Ways to trick my kids into eating:
Pretend you are going to eat something off her plate
Hand her some chopsticks
Tell him exactly how many bites he has to take to warrant a dessert

Chores I didn't want to do, but did anyway since I was off work:
Balance checkbook with bank statement
Litter box

Books I am currently reading:
I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence by Amy Sedaris
The View from the Upper Deck by DJ Gallo
Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger

Reactions to the statement "Chloe has a fever":
Bless her heart! (Mom)
Poor Chloe! (Sassy)
The only prescription is more cowbell. (Uncle Shannon)

Carrie is getting sick the exact same way that Chloe is, it sounds like. It must be because both of them spend their days around kids. Sucks.
