So yesterday was Rosa's birthday.
I had everything planned to give her a really relaxing day.
1. An appointment to get her hair done.
2. A pedicure appointment.
3. Time away from the house to sit and read at a Starbucks.
4. A nice dinner in the evening at the restaurant of her choice.
So that was what was planned.
When we got up Monday morning, we found Sanaa looking like this:
Being experienced and sensible parents, we promptly freaked out.
So we scooted everything to the side and took Sanaa to the doctor as soon as we could. Apparently, this is the calling card of the virus that she had. The fever breaks, and a rash gets left behind.
By the time we got home, it was near nap time. Sanaa was tired and fussy. Layla was letting us HAVE IT.
Rosa was faced with the reality that suddenly she might have a sick toddler for longer than she'd bargained for. Rather than do the weekly grocery shopping on a day when I was working, it made more sense to do it yesterday. By the time she got back, it was 2PM.
Layla promptly got up from her 20 minute nap, and proceeded to continue to let us have it. Then Sanaa woke up and proceeded to cry and ask for Mommy.
Rosa's Birthday = Ruined
The upside (if there is one), is that my parents graciously took the girls for the evening so that I could give Rosa a nice dinner. Most of the day though, was blown to heck.
I owe Rosa a do-over on her birthday.
