I am just sitting here on the verge of tears. Valerie has the flu. Again. The doctor took one look and said either she has the flu or mono. The flu swab came back positive.

So no birthday party on Saturday.

I had this fab party all planned out. After all, turning five is a big deal! I rented an awesome princess castle bounce house. All of Val's friends were coming. I had a castle cake all planned, and had even made all the towers. We have all the food and snacks. Everything is ready to go....

And now we can't have it. Chances are she'll be feeling better by Saturday, but she may still be contagious. And who knows if Veronica will come down with it... or me... or Clint. It's supposed to be freezing cold Saturday as well. Better to be safe and put the party on hold for now.

I know it's not the end of the world and we will reschedule it. Val was just so excited and I was so excited for her.

Now I'm just so sad for her.


  1. I think the saying for the day is "Poor Val". Please let her know that Lilly and "the boy w/the glasses" miss her and hope she gets better superfast!

  2. Oh, sad. I am always so scared about that- seems like kids always get sick when something is planned!

  3. How about an "unbirthday" party when she is better? Bet none of her friends have had one of those!

    Oh, no. Party time is already over as I'm reading this. Did she perhaps get snow for her birthday?

    Hope she's feeling much better.
