Germs and snuggles
My little princess has strep. This is only the second time in her 5 years to be on antibiotics, first time ever for strep. She usually has 1 or less sick visit a year. We are blessed that she is so healthy. I took the last two days off, and we snuggled, a lot.
She's amazing, this little princess of mine. Even with a fever and a tough case of strep, she never stopped smiling. She wanted to be held, snuggled, rocked, and sang to like we did when she was a baby. She wanted to lie in my lap and play with my hair. She wanted to color in my lap. She BREATHED on me A LOT!!
I'm not a germaphobe. Teaching kindergarten, you can't be. But strep is my nemesis. When I go too hard, too long, strep takes over my throat like a raging ball of fire with thorns. But as most mothers do, I just snuggled away all the while praying for immunity. It's part of the sacrifice we make for our kids. But I do have a plan to disinfect the house this weekend! (The dr. said throw toothbrush away after 5 days, so I am guessing that 5 days is the time frame for killing the germs effectively!
And I did see this great pin awhile back, and thankful that I did. Great way to keep up with the antibiotics!
NOT ready for this!
I also had to go to our school to begin the registration process for high school for big princess. We don't have a middle school, our elementary is PK-7 and high school is 8-12. So many decisions to make about curriculum that will eventually impact her college choices? WOW. I mean really, this could be life altering stuff.... We've started the talks about friend choices, class choices, organization and responsibility. For me, this is a bit like everyone else sending their children to kindergarten, she's been at school with me for 8 years!
