Last week, I was thinking how few sick + personal days I’ve used so far this year. I only had to make it 3 more weeks and then I’d have all of the winter + spring to worry about the rest of them. Well, I spoke too soon and spent yesterday at home with a sick little girl.
She woke up Monday morning complaining about her throat hurting. I took her temperature, but it was only at 99, so I didn’t think too much about it. Then, at 10:45, we got a phone call saying that she had a fever over 101.5 and needed to be picked up at school. If you’ve ever spent time around MacKenna, you know that you can barely get a word in. She LOVES to talk (I promise, she does NOT get that from me…). You know she’s pretty miserable when she only says about 5 words all night. Poor thing.
I stayed home with her yesterday, cuddling on the couch and watching Netflix all day. I actually ended up getting quite a bit done, like finishing up almost all of my Christmas shopping! I think all I have left are teacher gifts for Kenna’s preschool teachers and a gift exchange gift for our family gift exchange. Our theme this year is Food + Drink, so I doubt I’ll have any issues finding something.
Anyway, it’s back to work tomorrow. But, thankfully, there’s only 8 more days of school left until Christmas break. I’m ready for 2 weeks off of school…
I meant to do this on MacKenna’s actual birthday – you know, back in OCTOBER. But, well, quite honestly, I just totally forgot. Then, last week, Matt brought up something I we decided to interview her during dinner.
I am quite impressed with her responses. You can see a little of everything in her. She has such a sweet and caring heart. I can’t wait to see how her answers change throughout the years!
