Andrea got a flu shot on Monday, and yesterday (Wednesday) when I picked her up from day care, the staff commented that she had been grouchy all day, and had some diarrhea.
So I stayed home today with her today–diarrhea and a pretty high fever. Went through a whole lot of diapers, Desitin, and orange juice.
Sat with her on the couch–she watched her new favorite show Dora The Explorer while I read Richard Clarke’s Against All Enemies. (Only about halfway through at this point, but a great book so far.) Really strange juxtaposition of having Dora and Boots go through their childish adventures while reading about the spread of crack-job terrorists and the Tom Clancy-esque work inside the White House…
Andrea seems to be feeling better, so hopefully the diaper count will go down tomorrow and she’ll go back to being her usual delightful little self. Watching her being sick is one of my least favorite activities in the world.
