"All of my stuffed animals are circus animals…even me!" (Alex)
Yesterday I got a call at work around noon – Julia had a fever of 104 – so I changed my voicemail and sent a quick email to people to let them know I had to leave. When I arrived at daycare, all the other little kids were asleep on their cots, covered with blankets, except Julia. She sat on a little chair, a blanket across her lap, waiting quietly. They had given her tylenol, but it hadn’t kicked in yet. She still felt hot when I carried her to the car, and she was sad-sounding "Mommy, I don’t feel good…."
We hung out on the couch and watched Dora and other movies until we both dozed off.
Today she’s still warm – 101 – so my husband is staying with her for the day. And Alex has to go to kindergarten. Bill’s downstairs explaining this to him now. Wonder how that will go.
Okay, I thought I’d be able to post more, but apparently not. Gotta go get Alex moving along. And me.
