Fever!


My Darling Hunter, 40 degree fevers, vomiting, no voice, tears…all of these at the same time will explain just how seriously miserable your weekend was.

My Darling Hunter, I got home from work the other day and found you playing with your farm animals on the coffee table, and quite happily talking to yourself. After watching you for a while I say “That looks fun, whats that?” Hunter: “Cow Mommy…Moo!” “Yes my boy, well done that’s a cow” You turn…
