sometimes you just have to let go and hope you are doing ok as a parent. This gave me a lot of reassurance.
Yesterday she babysat for a neighbor and when she came home, she didn't feel great.
As the day wore on she felt worse and worse and by last night she had a fever. She downed some ibuprofen and took it easy, doing a little sketching while we watched a movie.
It is so wonderful seeing her enjoying art again. These sketches took no time at all. It amazes me at how she can be so talented and now under the right teacher, she is blooming. She used a regular pencil and eraser and a napkin on these. The only thing I could do with that is write a note or blow my nose.
a 5 minute apple...complete with striations and dimples
a 10 minute horse....my old mare Punkin. She was a beautiful, soulful animal and I miss her still
15 minutes legs. I don't get how you do knees. She was on the couch but drew the stripes to look like she was at the beach...
This morning, she woke up with a 102 degree fever and vomiting. (fun. fun. fun.)
I just hope it is a quick bug and that she can still go to the mall with her friends tomorrow....after all, Thanksgiving break is supposed to be FUN!
