Elena woke up with a fever this morning. Thankfully this is really abnormal for us. I don’t think Elena’s missed a day of school for being sick since last spring. For most of the day she just lounged about, looking pitiful. We snuggled in my bed this afternoon and had some reading time (FYI, she’s reading "Stanley and the Magic Lamp" from the Flat Stanley series). Unfortunately, feverish and pitiful has turned into feverish and vomiting . . . I didn’t think anyone wanted a picture of that, though. I hope she gets better soon. She is so sad because she and Mike were supposed to go to a Daddy-Daughter dance tonight, and she’s starting to worry about missing her Valentine’s Day party at school. It really sucks when your kid is sick.
