Another rough night

She popped a fever around 11:00 (again, right after I had fallen asleep!). Nebs, Ibuprophen, and Mama for a while, until she decided that our bed was better than hers.

Not taking her to school again, and she'll miss another Yom Tov program this afternoon. Seeing pediatrician at 1:45.

So we are home now, watching TV and wrecking the house. Yesterday when I finally woke up, I found her in the boys' room - with the door closed - dismembering some of their stuff. When I took a shower, she rummaged through my nighttable drawer.

A few moments ago, she was asking for/demanding a little ceramic figurine from my dresser. I told her no; she yelled; I moved the item higher...and she tried to climb up onto the dresser! So I loudly and sternly said "No - Bad Girl!"

This melts her completely. She went silent, and walked out of the room. I found her in the hallway, flopped over in one of those incredible poses only the very very limber can achieve. She doesn't really cry, just gets very upset.

I picked her up and cuddled until she calmed down. Now she is watching Sesame Street, but still hugging me - which means I am typing with one hand.

Sorry to hear that you were hope again last night. Hope Miss Sofia feels better soon. Leah seems better but is home for a third day. Still running a low grade temp, but she is no longer complaining of feeeling dizzy, thank goodness. Hope you and I can get everyone well soon!!!!! I have the same thing Leah does, it just hasn't hit me as hard. Stay well!
