Would you be glad that I told you the truth? It is Bryce's best friends birthday and his mom had called to ask me if Bryce could stay the night?Her son didn't want a big party,he said he would like it if it was just him and Bryce.
I told her I had no problem with it and we'd walk Bryce to her house when he got home from school.(Only lives one block away.)Well,the first thing Bryce did when he got home was fall asleep...which is extremely weird.He's 9 and doesn't take naps anymore. I let him sleep for an hour or so and then I got him up.He wanted to help pick the present.Anywho,Bryce started to run a fever and it only goes down with meds.Once the meds wear off the fever comes back.So,I told Bryce he couldn't go tonight.
Now,I do understand WHY the other boy's mom is upset.But,I would think that she would rather "hold off" on the sleepover for a day or two and not run the risk of her kid getting sick.(Especially cause right now the fever is the only symptom.)I mean,I could have not even mentioned it and let Bryce go over there anyway,kwim?
Life isn't like a box of chocolates . . . it's more like a jar of jalapenos.. What you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow!
