Poor Kylie has RSV. YUCK! I took her to the doctor Thursday thinking she had an ear infection. I was right. She does. But she also has RSV. That translates to no daycare for 8-15 days.  For a working mom with no sick days.. that hurts! Thankfully my mom was able to keep Kylie Friday and will be available a couple of days next week, so I don’t have to take all of the days off!

Even sick, Kylie is still such a great baby. Those precious smiles are not as regular and the kicking has slowed down, but she is still charming her way through the day.

I am really hoping that she recovers quickly as things at school are crazy busy and besides being difficult to miss work financially, I have a lot of deadlines looming.

On a brighter note, one of the things I am excited about at school is that last year, I took 13 students (about 25 pieces of art) to the regional art contest… this year.. 35 students and 62 pieces of art! That’s what you call growth!  In fact, I am taking so many that I’m gonna have to get some help transporting the art! Isn’t that a great problem to have :)

well, while I’m home the next few days, I am hoping to get a little crafting done.  Not sure how much given that baby wants to be held, but surely she can help me sew!!  And yes, I’ll show off my creations.


  1. So sorry to hear that your daughter has RSV. My 2nd born son had to be readmitted into the hospital twice in his first month of life due to jaundice and RSV. His older brother had a really bad cold when he was born and his immune system was unable to fight it off, so we were in the hospital for about a week. He's now 5 and very healthy. I'll be praying for a speedy recovery for your baby girl...there's nohting worse than having a sick baby. My heart goes out to you and your family. You're very lucky that you have support from your mother and she's able to care for your baby while you're at work. Not everyone has that. ;)

  2. Poor sweet Kylie! I can't believe how much school you've missed this year :( Well, at least your crafting wont suffer. I love the recent scrabook posts
