We have a sick day going. The kids have been doing well up to this point. We found the 10 Commandment Boogie by Go Fish and have been working our way through memorizing them. And we added body parts and counting to 10 to the list of things the kids can do in Chinese. Plus a few more songs. A was singing Wo De Peng You Zai Na Li the other night in bed. I couldn’t figure out why he kept calling our number magnets “E” and “R” and then I realized he was just using them in Chinese. 1- Yi and 2- Er.
As far as our sick day goes, A woke up with a cold yesterday. Which isn’t particularly unusual. They are small kids. It happens. The unusual thing is that K is sick too. I know she has a chronic illness for which we keep her immune system suppressed… But she NEVER gets sick. I can count the number of times she has had the sniffles in the last 6.5 years on one hand. I have to admit to a mild fear at the knowledge that she is sick. Migraine. Fever. Nausea. This is new territory with K. Honestly, our family hasn’t had the flu except when I got it while pregnant with A. We don’t do really sick. I’m hoping a little tylenol and a day in my bed will sort her out.
