A Tale of Broken Hearts
Unfortunately, it has happened ... our good health could only hold out so long! Thing 1 has something, this something involves a high fever, cough and sniffles. So, she has been confined to her room, along with a DVD player, her favorite movies, lots of comfy blankets, Sierra Mist, tissues and a cold wash cloth.
Hopefully she can kick this soon, and hopefully this won't hit all of us (we're handwashing like crazy around here).
What does this have to do with broken hearts? Well ... today Thing 1 was supposed to go to a birthday party at the Zoo! I can tell you she would much rather be there than in bed watching movies and sipping soda. She keeps asking me if her fever is down so that she can go. I keep telling her, no matter what she will not going, as we will be abiding by the 24 hours after the fever guideline! Needless to say, she is pretty bummed.
It gets worse here ... the girl having the party doesn't have many friends. I don't even know if anyone else was going to go. So I dreaded having to call and let them know how sick Thing 1 was and that she would not be attending. However, I had to do it, and I did. And I am pretty sure by the time I got off the phone, the little girl was crying!
I feel like the meanest person on earth.
I made a 9-year-old girl cry today!
And she's not even related to me!
I think I just might go bury my head in the sand!
