Sick Day

(With love, for my son, Logan Scheuer)


My tummy hurts mommy!

My blankie, I’m cold!

Don’t go to work mommy,

Can’t we just stay home?

Look out the window!

See all the snow?

Look at the trees–

Look how the wind blows!


Can I put on my snow-suit?

My hat, gloves, and boots?

You could put yours on

and play outside too!


Can we make a snowman?

Like the one on TV?

With the hat and the bunny;

You know, FROSTY!!

What are you watching mommy?

Can I sit with you?

Night, night, mommy.

I love you.
