Sick day

Nate was sick last week with a really bad cough and he had his preschool halloween party on thursday. He had been looking forward to it all week and was so excited to dress up in his costume! He woke up coughing up his lungs and it broke my heart that I had to tell him he wasn't going to be able to go to preschool since he was sick! When Nate asked if it was time to go to preschool Skyler told him that instead of dressing up to go to preschool that he should dress up in his costume and come up to his office to go trick or treating with dad at the office. Nate loves going to daddy's work! He immediately said ok and was really excited! So glad that didn't turn out into a long blowout! Great idea Skyler! Skyler left for work and went and bought candy and told the offices around him about Nate and they all were so nice to help out and make Nate feel better about not being able to go to his party! We got to the office around noon and when we walked in Skyler came up and gave us all a big hug and then he asked Nate if he was ready to trick or treat. Of course he was! He went and knocked on the door of skyler's coworker, Russ, and when he opened it he said trick or treat! He got some candy and Russ gave him one of his golfballs he knew Nate loved! I kinda got teary eyed watching this. It was so nice of Skyler and everyone to do this for him! It made his and my day so much better! He then went to the office across the hall and trick or treated! Skyler also picked up a pizza and had it there for us to eat lunch with him. It was a great afternoon!
