Day 3: I scream, you scream, we all scream!


Day three and I think I am coming down with something.  I know HFMD is something children get but I have been experiencing headaches, loss of appetite, nausea, and fever. Maybe I am simply experiencing sympathy pains, who knows?  But what I do know is that I am more irritable today. The kiddos also appear to be getting a little agitated.

The day started off okay; our little man did think-it-through tiles with me while our girls put on dress-ups and danced to the Disney Princess CD. But then after our little man had finished the think-it-through tiles, played with his Power Rangers, and made a computer out of cardboard he must have gotten bored because he resorted to irritating his sisters.  Which resulted in them screaming and eventually I too joined into the mix (so much for Scream free Parenting, perhaps it is time to reread the book?).

So, I screamed, they screamed, and our little man complained because his throat was hurting (the sores in the mouth irritate the throat…the kiddos are constantly asking for ICE water) so what could be better, or more appropriate given the circumstances than, ice cream!!!

We made ice cream sundaes and it was precisely what we needed to cool everyone down.

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!

    I hope it is just from stress or sympathy pains, but it is not uncommon for parents to get it from their child. It seems like it would be really hard not to. Hang in there!
