I know you are one of the parents who are excited and couldn’t wait for the Spring Break to come. Yes it is getting hear. Actually, in our district, Spring Break is next week starts on March 11th. Hopefully the weather next week is ideal for outdoor activities so we can enjoy going to the parks or any attractions in and around Dallas-Fort Worth.
My darling daughter wants to go to the zoo and the botanical gardens next week. Like I said, I hope the weather would be fine next week because I am pretty sure the zoo will be crowded as usual. Like last year’s Spring Break, we are just going to do stay-cation this year. We went to the zoo and botanical gardens and looks like we are going do that again.
Do you have any travel plans on Spring Break this year? Where are you going? Thanks for sharing.
Oh dear! Darling daughter has the flu. I took her to her pediatrician yesterday afternoon because she’s running fever for two days and was feeling weak. Her appetite was poor and all she wanted to do is sleep. She said she’s tired.
Good thing her doctor was able to see DD on Tuesday. I was very worried. No sleep the night before because I was monitoring her temperature.
Around 3 o’clock Monday morning I woke up needing to go and I felt DD’s hand on my arm feeling hot. I immediately checked her temperature that moment. The reading was 100.1 F. I kept her home, of course. She was throwing up that morning I was so worried. Good thing there’s no diarrhea. DD was complaining of a headache so I gave her pain reliever/fever reducer medicine that day. I was monitoring her fever overnight as well.
The fever didn’t subside so I called the pediatrician’s office for an appointment. We were able to see the doctor in the afternoon, thank goodness. Strep and flu tests were conducted–the strep test came back negative but the flu came back positive. Immediately her doctor prescribed medicine to take for five days. DD is coughing but her lungs sounds perfect. She recommends lots of rest for the rest of the week.
As of today, my darling daughter is feeling a little okay. No fever overnight after taking the medication. Also, I am very glad that her appetite is back.
It is very hard when our children gets sick. We worry so much. But we should not panic. Call and see your health provider.
If you are lucky enough to have one or more babies in your family right now, you may be thinking about what you will get them for the holidays. After all, the holiday shopping season is fast approaching, and many people like to get all of their shopping done as early as possible to save themselves money and stress. Babies are one of life’s greatest delights, but the truth is that they can be hard to shop for, especially when they are very young. If you’re not sure how to shop for the littlest ones in your life, here are a few tips to help you get started.
The first thing to think about when you’re shopping for a holiday gift for a baby in your life is their parents. After all, the parents are the ones who will actually be opening the gift and they are the ones whose tastes really matter. If you want to be a hit with the parents, pick something for their baby that fits with their opinions and styles. For example, a Seahawks onesie would be perfect for sports fans from Seattle, or a little superhero shirt would be great for a fan of comic books.
Next, think about the baby and what he or she would enjoy. Of course, you can’t know any particular baby’s real tastes, and babies change every day, but use common sense to pick some appropriate. Don’t buy anything that a baby can’t safely play with, which means that it must be safe enough to put in their mouth. Choose something soft and snugly to make sure that a baby will want to hold it close and touch it often. Pick something bright and colorful to get his or her attention and delight.
Finally, don’t stress about it. The most important gift that you can give to any baby in your life is the gift of time. Take some time this holiday season to spend with all the little ones that you love.
