Student of the Month

Kylie has wanted to be Student of the Month for a LONG time.  In fact, last year she even asked her teacher what exactly she had to do to get Student of the Month.  Well, this year, her teacher said that everytime she announced the Student of the Month, she would watch Kylie as she sat at her desk with her fingers crossed mouthing, "please, please, please" in hopes it would be her.
So, last week when the letter came home she had won, I knew she would be excited, but I had no idea just how excited.....I came home from work and she met me at the door with an envelope that said, "To the Parents of Kylie", but it had a smiley face after it so I knew it wasn't anything too bad! :) Well, I had no idea what it was, so when I opened it and I read it I looked at her and told her what it said and she just started smiling and laughing....and then all of the sudden just bawling!  She just fell into my arms!  She was crying so hard that Richie came out from the bedroom and asked what was going on.  She had wanted it for so long that all of those emotions just erupted!
Today was the Student of the Month breakfast and Kylie has been planning this day since we got the letter--what she should wear, who all would be attending, etc.  We had breakfast, but I noticed she didn't eat much.  Then, she didn't seem like herself.  As the breakfast wrapped up, she put her head on the table and started to cry.  She felt sick and was miserable.  I felt so bad for her! She has been looking forward to today! But, I honestly think it was all of the emotion and excitement that made her sick.  She stayed home with my Mom and slept for about 3 hours, then she ate a big lunch and was back to her normal self. So glad she feels better!
