As I know I may have mentioned, this week has turned from a sick day into a sick week!
Paprika got some nasty bug at Theatre Class last Sunday. She played like she wasn’t sick for as long as she could…because bless her heart, I think she was worried we wouldn’t let her go back if we knew she’d picked up germs there. Ha!
So, most of this week, she spent in her pajamas in bed. I think it’s just a cold, but really she gets sick so rarely (knock on wood…and I’m not complaining) – that when she does get sick, it’s a big deal.
Of course, she also got ME sick and now Ginger, too! We’re really dropping like flies around here. We have Paula’s party to go to on Saturday night, and no one can be sick for it! I have been looking forward to that party for a month, so I am going even if I have to wear a SARS mask. 😉
Paprika being sick has thrown a wrench into our homeschool this week. She has been really too sick to do any school work, so she’s been having fun doing educational apps on the iPad. She has also learned more about health and the human body than I probably learned in college. She has been reading about viruses, bacteria, how germs are transmitted…she’s been teaching me things!
I guess nothing gets you excited about learning like personal experience. Silver linings, right? 😉
Daisy knows I am sick and has been in my face 24/7. How can I help you? Do you need a lick? I bet you’d feel better then!
I think Daisy would make me a cup of tea if she had hands. It’s hard having paws.
By Wednesday, I HAD to get out of the house. I put everyone in the van, and we went and looked out at the ocean a few blocks from our house…we literally went for a quarter mile drive. It was all I could muster!
On Thursday, we REALLY needed to get out of the house. Ginger (4) and Violet (1) really wanted to go to the park, but I didn’t want to get anyone else sick. So, we drove around until we found an empty park.
Then, about two seconds after we got out of the van, the landscapers came to mow the lawn and it was SO LOUD we had to get back in the van immediately. I didn’t want to go to another park because…well, I was sick and I knew the other parks had people there. So, we waited 20 minutes for the landscapers to finish – and then we had the park all to ourselves! Hooray!
A little fresh air was JUST what the Dr. ordered!
Oh, and in case you didn’t notice – Violet (1) and Ginger (4) are sharing clothes now! Yep – this is a size 4T dress that Violet is wearing. She knows fashion – that is, she wants to wear whatever Ginger is wearing!
Happy Friday and Have a Great Weekend!
