Time Travel

I've had a terrible head cold all weekend. And because of that, I was really worried to speak in church today.

Yesterday afternoon, I even loaded up the kids and drove down to Fred Meyer to stock up on some cold medicine so that I could be all "drugged up" to give my talk without sniffling, coughing, wiping, etc.

As we were standing in the medicine aisle at Freddy's, I sneezed two times in a row really loudly.

Porter said, "Wow, Mom. You just went back in time 40 minutes!"

I looked at him, confused for a minute, and then started laughing when I remembered the book he was reading. In this book, there is a character that has a super power, that whenever she sneezes, she goes back in time 2o minutes.

Well, this morning, Porter woke up sick. I told him that I would hurry home as soon as Sacrament meeting was over so that I could take care of him.

Just as I was walking out of the room, he said, "Mom, I really hope you don't sneeze during your talk today. That way they will only have to listen to you give it once!"

I love Porter and how he thinks! Was that the talk you had to give at your home ward? How did it go? You have to speak a lot! I bet you are being prepared for something....Like General Relief society:) BTW, I LOVE my kitchen aid, I bet I have used it at least once a day since I got it, thanks again Nat, love ya!

Natalie, what a smart, clever boy you have! That was just such a fun comment Porter made. And, I echo what the others have said, hope you are both feeling better.
