Mother of the year!

Valerie missed her first day of school today. It was a makup day from hurricane Gustav, and I doubt they were doing much. She's had a runny nose and cough for about 3 weeks now. Just lingering sinus crap, the same as we all have. Or so I thought! Sunday she spiked a fever and again last night. This morning she sounded like was hacking up a lung! And then there's this rash that appeared yesterday... The few times she's been really sick, she's had a speckled rash. It showed up yesterday. So off to the doctor we went. I almost cancelled the appointment because after she was up and about, she was FINE. Well, She has STREP! WTF? No telling how long she has had it. Not once did she ever slow down or even act sick. Not one indication she had anything other than a cold. I asked her over and over if her throat or ears hurt and she said no every time. It didn't seem like much of anything, so I just decided to wait it out. I'm not a nervous Momma who rushes to the doctor at every sniffle.

So... Veronica is snotty and coughing as well. Looks like we'll be spending tomorrow morning at the doctor with her since there is a good chance Roni has it also. Lovely.

How bad of a Mom am I?! I can't even tell when my babies are sick! Really sick!!

  1. Been there! My child was on the brink of pneumonia. So, you are not a bad mom at all! We all learn as we go :)

    Merry Christmas Eve, Melanie!!
