The winner is...

Monday's are always hard for Harrison. After being at home for two days he just doesn't like getting up and going to school. Today was no exception. It started with him whining about his stomach hurting when he was upstairs getting dressed. After going through this weekly, I know his tricks so rather than comfort him, I told him he would probably feel better after getting something to eat.

Downstairs while eating breakfast, he started whining about not wanting to go to school. When he realized that we weren't buying it, he turned it up a notch and started full fledged crying. After a couple of minutes of crying, he choked a little. Seeing that I acknowledged this (I got up to get him a drink) he started trying to make himself gag and cough.

It was truly a performance worthy of an Oscar. It's just too bad I didn't have the video camera nearby.

His performance didn't get him out of school although it did make us late for the bus. Thankfully they caught it at the next stop and by then the tears were gone.
