Nathan had a great time at Cub camp. According to his grandfather, he participated and there were only a few meltdowns. He stayed for the whole day, getting there for just after 8 am and coming come at 11. It was a long day full of fun, sun and running about.
Thus it is not a surprise to be reaping some consequences. When he got home, he began to complain that his tummy was hurting. He didn't want to eat, he didn't want to walk anywhere and he was just plain exhausted. I ended up leaving my cousin's baby shower on Sunday since his tummy was upset.
Today, his throat is sore and he's coughing and running a fever. So he'll be staying home to recover for awhile. I'm hoping that a day of rest and fluids will help him to heal.
Perhaps this makes me a bad mother, but I still feel that the day of camp is worth it. Even if he's sick for a day or two. It's a great opportunity to socialize and be part of the group and it's real progress for him to participate.
