Just barely one step ahead

This morning JB was a wreck. Crying, whining, not himself at all even before he woke up completely.

Then he started (pretty convincingly) with a litany of, "I don't feel good"s and "I'm sick."

He couldn't tell us what was wrong just kept crying and saying he was sick.

We persisted in the somewhat gentle questioning and then he cried out, "MY BIG TOE. MY BIG TOE HURTS. I HURT IT AT MY SCHOOL AND NOW I DON'T FEEL GOOD."

Poor kid, if only he said, "My belly."

I would have fallen for it today if all that drama were connected to belly pain.
