Cancelled plans

The sun is shining, the air is warm, and her 3 sisters are in school for the day, so Devin and I planned to have a picnic lunch at the playground of her choice. We ran a few errands in the morning, then she watched TV while I packed the cooler. I went into the living room to get her ready to go, and her skin was on fire. I took her temperature and it read 103. So instead of a fun filled afternoon, I brought her pillow (changed into her favorite pillow case) and a bottle of milk and put in a DVD so she could relax on the couch.
Here she is just a few minutes later - freshly showered - after vomitting all over her pillow and herself. Her head is on a towel and she's got a puke bowl by her side, ready for action. One day of preschool-->one virus. Great start! Poor kid.

Poor thing! That's a pretty high fever. Hope it passes quickly. Is the flu pretty active around you?

What a great idea to line the puke bucket with a plastic bag? Vicki
