Sophie got a mild case of conjunctivitis on Tuesday, and today she had a fever and a runny nose. Day care called me up, so I had to take the kids home early, and because of their sick-out policy, we can't bring Sophie back until 24 hours after her fever has disappeared. I know they are trying to prevent things from spreading, but realistically, once you've noticed something like a fever it's too late, and because, somebody could be spreading something even when they aren't showing obvious symptoms. So that means
We missed my company's little holiday party tonight (no biggie).
O has to stay home tomorrow (and she already did on Wednesday).
We can't take advantage of day care's special "parents night out" tomorrow night -- for $25, they would babysit the kids until 8 or so, while parents got some quality time alone. We signed up for that. Well, that's not gonna happen now, sigh.
Anyway, Sophie is doing fine with some infant's Tylenol -- she's feeling and looking much better !
