Rough Day

We woke up to "snow" this morning and I use the term snow very loosely. We have about 1/2 inch. Our girls were thrilled and the preschool was cancelled due to in climate weather. (I can just imagine the laughs coming from all the Northerners and Mid-westers who are reading this). The morning started off fun! We got to go to our church and decorate sugar cookies. From there the day spiraled downward with varying degrees of craziness. Then my husband came home from work and we went to meet my friend to go to a consignment sale. It was great and I got some real deals, but I noticed our oldest was being really good. Does anyone else have a child that when they don't argue and are acting compliant they make you freak out? We do. And it is her. I noticed she kept saying she was cold. Needless to say by the time we got home she was sick. Her fever is around 101. As we were coming in, she held the door and started bawling. I picked her up and she says, "I can't keep holding that door. It's too hard and it hurts me!!!!!!!!! I can't do all these things everyone wants me to do!!!!! It's too much!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" I almost lost it. I think that is so cute and FUNNY! Then I deposited her onto the couch and she asked if she could have plain, warm water. Then she beams her big blues up at me, tears hanging on her eyelashes and said, "I've had a rough day". You gotta love it!

She is a little perky and drank some milk and diet sprite. Her fever is down now to about 100. She has played most all morning and is winding down now.
