This morning, J.P woke up with a very puffy left eye! I looked at him in horror. Today his school is having a Christmas concert, and he's performing with his class. Yikes! He can't look like this! "What happened to you?", I asked. "I don't know.", he answered. The barrage of questions began. Were you playing rough with A.R? Did you fall down? Did you bump into a wall? What happened last night? He shrugged his shoulders. I debated whether he should stay home, or go to school. His eye looked terrible. I decided it was best to keep him home. J.P broke down, and started to cry, "But mommy, I want to go to the Christmas concert! I don't want to miss it." I hugged him and told him to stop crying. Then, I remembered he ate a mango flavoured cake for dessert last night, and he might have had an allergic reaction. I said, "Okay, you can go. I'll just give you some Benadryl." J.P is delighted with my decision, and quickly runs off to dress himself. Honestly, I just didn't have the heart to say no to him. So, this afternoon, we'll see our little boy perform - slightly puffy but definitely happy!
