Aunt Duty

Today I was on "Aunt Duty"!

I got a call from my sister (Cheryl) that my nephew (Nolan) was at school and not feeling well, so I went and picked him up and brought him home with me....the poor thing vomited all day. Her job requires her to travel around the state and she was several hours away this morning when she got the call. He is old enough (13) to be home by himself so I asked him if he wanted to go home or come to my place...bless his heart, he chose to come "hang" out with me. This nasty stomach flu has been going around the school for far neither one of my kids have caught it......but now I just might!


Our boys basketball team played tonight...they didn't play their best but still came away with a WIN.....Go Team! The girls play again tomorrow night, their record is 2-1 so far.

That was nice of you to be on Aunt Duty! I hope you don't get sick though...that flu can be some nasty stuff!

Have a great weekend!

I am glad you were close to pick up your nephew and that he chose to come home with you. I sure hope you do not catch the flu. Glad the basketball team won. We are going to a game tonight. Our boys team is 3 to 1. Have a good day

Love and Hugs

I remember Nolan being at your house a few years ago when I visited. Don't kid yourself...I could tell he adores being with you. You are a great aunt!

**Yeah Chargers!!! I still can't get used to the boys and girls playing during the same season. Why did they change it?

Bless your heart for taking care of a puking kid that is not your own. I have a hard enough time taking care of mine when they are sick let alone my nephew! You should get an aunt of the year award or something!

Tracy said...

Awwww...that was so nice of you. At least when daycare kids get sick I get to call the parents to come and get them. It's no fun to clean it up that is for sure!!!

You guys have played alot of games already. We are 2-0. The boys play tonight in Lennox. BIG GAME!

How nice of you to clean up throw-up. You're one nice aunt!!
Congrats on the wins. Glad to hear you guys are doing well!

Rose said...

You ARE a nice aunt. I hope your nephew feels better today. This is a good time of year to stock up on Clorox wipes :)

Teresa said...

Three cheers for Aunt Chris! What a blessing you are.

I hope Nolan is feeling better. We have had the flu at our house for the last 2 weeks....yuck!

You deserve 'the best aunt award' for taking care of your nephew when he has stomach flu! I hope you Lysoled everything down after he went home so that you don't get it. Poor guy, he has my sympathy, I hate to throw up!!

Nice pictures of your kids in the band. I loved it when Son was in the band in high school. It was so much fun but then he started playing football and they couldn't do both. I thought band was much safer!!

Hope your nephew feels better. Stomach bugs are the worst.

Wow you have been busy! I just played catch up. Neat to have gotten such close pictures of the kids, and sorry about the stomach flu with your nephew!...But the prize for the greatest gift ever giving was your old home!

Thanks for being so wonderful and giving the house away!

I am having a one year blog anniversary giveaway...nothing as amazing as a home...but swing on over!

Oh no! Poor guy. I hope he's feeling better soon.

(I hope even more that your family doesn't get it.)
