Exercise Hurts

A conversation with my 7-year old son this morning:

On waking him to go to school:

E: "Mommy, my stomach hurts!"
Me: "E, it's just the second day of school!" Bending over (being somewhat paranoid of such things as appendicitis...), "where does it hurt?"
E: "All over..."
Me: Reaching down to press on his stomach, "Here? Here?"
E miserably: "Yes..."
Me thinking, "Ummmm...did you do a lot of leg lifts at football yesterday?"
E: "Yes."
Me straightening, "Well, honey, I think you've got good old muscle soreness. Nothing you can do about it. It will get better on its own."
E whining, "But it hurts!"
Me: "I know, sweetheart. Feel the burn."
