A month or so ago, when we were in the throes of Mystery Rash 2009, Faith got sick. She is high drama. She never shies from attention. But when she senses there is already a little too much stress in mom’s life, she tends to fade into the background.
I came in one afternoon after school to find this:
Sure enough two days of fever and sore throat later, she was on the mend. And I was left kicking myself for taking her good behavior for granted and not seeing she was sick until she was a puddle on the couch.
I’ll be sure to look a little closer from now on.
