Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

A bug

Ella had a fever this weekend, and she still has a lingering cold. Melvin was speculating where she might have picked up this bug, since she doesn't go to daycare.
I could tell him.

It could have been her oldest brother, who has been sniffing and hacking away this past week.

She might have picked up something from the kids she hangs out with on Thursday mornings when I meet with my small group.

It might have been from the music class she's in on Friday mornings with a group of 2 & 3 year olds.

Or she could have caught some bug in the tubes and slides at a big indoor playplace we visted last week.

Or, quite possibly, probably, almost definitely, she is sick because everytime she walks outside and into the car, no matter how dirty or mucky or muddy the snow is, when in her carseat, she licks the bottom of her shoes.

Now I'm sick. But no shoe licking on my part.

Ella! That's not lady-like. That's something your friend Kyle would do.

Kids are just weird. Logan has licked his shoe too. Why on earth would they do that?!

Kids are gross.

She is awfully beautiful though.
