sick day


I knew that when I sent my daughter to school today I was going to get a call from the nurse. She woke up this morning complaining that her stomach hurt, but since there was no headache or fever, I sent her. An hour and a half later, I got the call. She was still sick and now running a low-grade fever, so home we went. Lex took her place on the couch and waited for the medicine to kick in.

I decided that if I was home, I was going to be productive. Laundry, dishes, vacuuming…nope, not that kind of productive. I colored my hair šŸ™‚ I recently started doing this again after a few years of only adding highlights occasionally. I don’t get it done anywhere (too cheap for that), so I just grab a box that looks good. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn’t. I have some pretty horrible horror stories, and I would like to add that I did the gray/lavender combo before Kelly Osborne, although mine was unintentional. I think it worked well this time. For anyone looking to do their hair at home, I highly recommend the John Frieda Precision Foam Color.

hello, light blonde hair. i missed you.

By this time, Lex was feeling better, which made me happy. She wanted her nails painted, and I though, why not? She picked out hot pink with black crackle (little fashionista). After I painted her nails, she wanted to repay the favor by polishing my toes. I was a littleĀ apprehensiveĀ about this, but a girl’s got to practice her painting skills somewhere.

So between coloring my hair and the “pedicure”, my sick day turned into a spa day! Thanks, Lex, and feel better!

Moms or dad, what do you do to occupy your time at home with a sick kid (besides take care of the kid, of course)? šŸ™‚
