Then she broke out in a fever last night and was very pitiful. It's so sad to watch a usually exuberant child act all mopey and puny. We knew she couldn't go to school today (they have to be fever free for 24 hours to go to school) so I mentally rearranged the day around the inevitable doctor's appointment.
But lo! The fever did what fevers are supposed to do, and quickly, I might add, because Caroline woke up good as new and ready to make up for the 5 hours she lost to lethargy last night. She wanted to go to the pool, which I told her we could not do because she was sick, remember? -- but I agreed to set up an inflatable pool in the front yard.
This was definitely better than the sick day I was expecting to have with Caroline.
