That was the question from (S) today. She was supposed to go yesterday and again today. I know she knows that something is up, but she has no idea what. She has been absolutely miserable today. Every time you tell her "no" she runs out of the room crying. As a result we have tried not to say that too much but to offer alternatives that she might like.

So, I went sledding in the front yard again today. I had to shovel out steps so that she could climb up the hill that the plow made. I think I dragged that sled up that hill about 100 times today. Then it was time to make snow angels again.

sidenote: When you are a kid making snow angels you have a snow suit on. When you are an adult and try it with your jeans on they just get wet and make you miserable.

After that we had some lunch..... She loves "sketti"..... which we usually don't have for lunch, but I thought she would like it. She ate it up. Then we played with her new shopping cart. Unfortunately, with everything we did, it didn't help much. She is still not feeling well. She said she doesn't feel well, but she doesn't know what hurts, or why she doesn't feel well.

I hope that whatever the issue is it gets worked out early in the week so that (S) can spend some time with her mom. She has been so clingy tonight as well. She is grabbing either me or my dear wife and just holding on. It would appear that she is afraid of losing us too. I hope there is no longterm affect from all of this, but I am not too optimistic.

She is such a cute and delightful and smart kid. I wish I could make it all better, but unfortunately I can not. At least not today.

  1. Poor kid. It is just rotten that she, and so many other kids in "the system" have to go through this kind of craziness. Sounds like you are doing a wonderful job with her, though. I hope things get resolved quickly.
