Day of Rest.
I mean, I really feel so sad for the kids when they're sick, I do. But part of me loves it. Gracie lies in our bed, covers up to the neck and a cold cloth on her head, and talks softly to me. She asks politely for drinks of cold water and moves only slightly when I caress her head for hours on end. I just don't really mind that part, I'll be honest. We did miss the Kindergarten Academy Awards today, though, and I missed a meeting. But I get to stay home all day and nurse my girl back to health.
And just a tidbit. I've been washing my hands all day to avoid spreading germs. Girl 1 sets down her cup of juice. Baby girl 3 picks it up moments later and starts guzzling. I think we're in for the long haul.
