Today was one of those days where I felt very busy but didn't get much done around the house. My daughter had her ballet classes, so while she was there my two younger daughters (9 & 2 )went grocery shopping with me. My 9 yr old dd helped keep track of what we were spending by using the calculator. I just would tell her the price of an item as I put it in the cart. I was afraid she would put the wrong numbers in or push a wrong button and I would be way off. I was trying to be careful because I had cash only to pay for groceries. She did a great job because she came up with almost the exact numbers as the cashier. She was so careful & did a good job.... what a help she was : ) After grocery shopping I went & refilled our 5 gallon water cooler jugs. We buy water for 25 cents a gallon at place in town. I just don't like the taste of our well water.
I then picked my daughter up from ballet & headed home. We had a simple dinner of sandwiches & watermelon...it was just too hot to eat cooked food. Really it was a pretty uneventful day until a few hours ago.
My 2 yr old fell asleep on Daddy's lap and when he layed her down & I checked on her she felt pretty warm ,like she had a fever. I checked her temp. & it was 101, although to me she felt warmer than that. She acted like her normal self all day.....so it just seemed strange that she all of sudden had a fever. I woke her up ,gave her some Tylenol , Herbs for Kids, & wiped her down with a cool wash clothe. I tried to get her to drink some cool water but she didn't want any.
She seems to have cooled down and is sleeping peacefully. I hope whatever is wrong passes quickly. It's so hard to see my kids sick, especially the littlest ones because they just can't tell you how they feel & it's so hard not to start worrying.....and I tend to always think the worst. I'm so glad that God as made it possible for me to lift them up in prayer to Him......it's really the only peace I have when they are sick. I'm going to check on my little one and then head to bed myself.
