Emma Sage woke up this morning and she had developed a bad cold overnight.....the kind of buggy nose that just begs for you to keep a box of Kleenex with you.
After 'blowing' out a few times, she looks at me in all seriousness and says
"I am ill, and I can't go to Greta's banquet tonight. I don't want to get everyone sick!"
Awe.....my sweet little girl.
I tell her...."are you sure? Abbie will be there"
She replies...."No, I think you need to call PopPop and I can go there and cuddle and read books"
So I called PopPop during the day while she was at school [yes, I sent a sick kid to school.....as I said, it came on over night and she had a good 'blow out' in the morning, and I sent her with a box of Kleenex]
She got home and her face looked like it had been through a war......red and chapped and she was blowing full steam ahead.
So she went to PopPop's to cuddle........and now she is sleeping soundly and I am going to keep her home from school tomorrow. My smart little girl was right, I don't want her getting others sick.
Here is a picture taken a few years ago......but when I think of the 'Sweetness' my little girl expresses....this image captures her sweetness perfectly!
