Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Sick Kids

For the first time all school year, I had a kid home sick.  La Nina work with a deep sounding cough and rather than risk pneumonia or bronchitis, I kept her home.  

Of course, this meant my plans were tossed out the window like old soup and I had to readjust to having her around.  But somehow it's different now.  She works the remote control like an old pro.  When she grew tired of the television, she turned it off and fired up the computer.  We played a couple of games after lunch and she retired to her bedroom to relax on her own accord.  

So, yes, I wasn't able to leave the house all day.  All my errand will wait until tomorrow or Wednesday.  Yet, tending a semi-sick child was much easier than in the past when I was on call for every channel change, computer glitch, forced nap, meal required and diaper change.  The one thing that hasn't changed:  I'm still wiped out from the whole ordeal and hope she's able to get back to school tomorrow.
