Staying Home Sick

Lizzy goes to school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Last Wednesday she stayed home sick and this Wednesday she stayed home also. She has a mild cold mostly a runny nose but she's not to go to school sick so she stayed home.

A family friend from Argentina who has a sick child at Texas Children's Hospital gave Lizzy a sick baby doll (baby ah choo fisher price). The doll sneezes, takes medicine, and says 30 interactive phrases in Spanish when you give her medicine, take her temperature, or wipe her nose. Lizzy absolutely loves this doll! It's great that she got the doll the same time she was sick because she relates to it and has learned to ask us to wipe her nose, give her medicine, sneeze, tissue, ect. She knows and says these things in both English and Spanish which is great.

We went to grandmas house and to the neighborhood park to play. Afterwards we went to a Mexican restaurant and Lizzy ate all her beans, rice, and quesadilla. She loves beans for some reason she can't get enough of them.
Lizzy really wants to go back to school every time we drive by the school she exclaims "teachers"! She seems to be back to normal so we will take her tomorrow. We have warm weather so Lizzy is going to really enjoy playing outside at school tomorrow.
