There's a quote that I see floating around Facebook every so often: "The most precious jewels you'll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children."
With all due respect to whoever first penned that, I'd like to amend it slightly. Here is my version: "The most beautiful decorations that will ever adorn your table are the bouquets of wildflowers and weeds that your children pick for you." :)
Since then, Tobin has complained from time to time about his stomach hurting, but with nothing even close to the intensity of that one night. His appetite has been off, and his energy low, but nothing too alarming. Both Shav and Moriah have seemed a little off, too; and there have been some complaints of tummy aches, sore throats, and so forth. All three of them were eager to fall asleep this evening, and I'm hoping that a good night of rest will bring restoration to their bodies.
