I felt kinda bad because she was well enough to do things around the house, but I kept her home from school. I just never know with her, so better to error on the side of caution. I am still not sure what tomorrow holds. If she stays home tomorrow, that will be a week off. I am done trying to guess what the illness is going to do to my family.
She is going on a ten day headache right now. Darn steroids do it everytime. And she is up mutliple times every night. The steroids make her unable to sleep. And hungry. Don't ever take a kid on steroids grocery shopping with you. Just don't do it.
So in her efforts to find something to do today...she decided to make a cake from scratch. I don't remember a time when I have even done this. I am a box cake girl at best. But she had a cookbook from her cooking camp last summer and made the whole thing herself. From scratch. Even the frosting was from scratch. It was tasty too. It made a giant mess of the kitchen, but kept her away from the TV for most of the day.
Ally and her chocolate cake and her crazy hair:
I know tons of people are sick right now. Just yucky. We need Spring soon!
PS Carly is feeling better with her ear.
