TGIF...turned out not so much. Took Emma in to visit her class, got a copy of her bus schedule and what shots she still needed. Took her in to get her shot (have I mentioned that she has been acting FINE???) and the nurse is all "Mommy, she feels warm. We're going to take her temp before we give this to her." 102.3. WHAT?!?!?!?! Yeah...guess THAT was a bust. Took her down to PEDS with very little hope of ACTUALLY getting in for a same day appt...they managed to fit us in. Strep test was negative. But she had a MISERABLE night last night. Not puking or anything...just so feverish that she was miserable and up and down from my room to hers the whole night. So, fevered child meant no dance for her today, meaning that since Abby had her karate graduation (and I had already booked a babysitter to sit with the girls over at the dance studio)so she had to come out to the house instead. Poor Bethany. Not sick, but missed out on dance anyway. Bummer.
So off to Abby's graduation! Despite massive traffic, we made it there on time, with extra time for her to prep, practice, & get excited. She LOVES karate. She did SO well today. There are some days that she is SO unfocused that I doubt that she has the curriculum down...but boy did she prove me wrong! That kid is a sponge!!! She stuck everything! Her guard was nice and high and tight and her HI-YA's were loud and crisp and she smiled and just did FABULOUS! So, I am now the proud mommy of a brand new Green Belt 8 yr old in tae kwon do!!! :)
