do you remember being 8 years old?
missing teeth and funny haircuts…
the thrill of being awarded a medal…
6 months of swimming school (twice a week)
and not missing a day.
meanwhile, Kayla…. struck down by the mighty influenza type B (cue dramatic organ music) was stuck at home for 5 full days, missing out on perfect attendance for 5th grade AND 3 days of swimming school. I must mention here that it’s one thing to be a “stay at home mom” while everyone is off at work and school and a completely OTHER THING to be a “stay at home mom with a sick kid”. UFF DA. It’s saturday now, and OH JOY! my day must be shared with not only the lingeringly sick child, but the other kids and a husband. and it’s raining.
