Piper's Sick

She has been having a fever come and go, but mostly come. We've been alternating between Motrin and the Tylenol with Cold medicine (but every 4hrs, not every 2 like you can - I'm not a big druggie). She's relatively well behaved when sick; except when she's eating, shivering with fever, not getting her way, wanting to jump on the trampoline or wants to get dressed and out of her pj's. But really, she's a trooper. Now that she's 3 and more verbal she can, and does, tell us what hurts. If she gets an owie she requests a "nandaid" or tells me she's going to get "bud" (blood) from her owie if she doesn't get said nandaid (there's no scrape or anything). With this fevering illness, she's been having headaches; I think. This is what she says... "My head's crackin'." Wuh? Crackin'? Alright. Have some more medicine and how 'bout some peanut M&M's for good measure.

Poor Piper!!

My head is cracking? That is so cute (but sad too because she is sick).

Such a relief when they can finally TELL you what hurts!

But does she have a beaver? *ask ~j**

No, no beaver but she insists she has a penis. Silly girl.

Oh my. I have the BEST cartoon to send you about beavers.

Hope Piper is feeling better. It's amazing what nandaids and M&Ms will cure.
