My 4-year old daughter recently spent 2 weeks off school while battling penumonia. During her time away from class, she spent a good majority of her time battling fevers of 104, not eating, and sleeping. I don’t think I have ever seen her sleep so much in her life.
A week after falling ill, many trips to various doctors and lastly a trip to the ER, she was finally diagnosed and given a course of antibiotics to take. It took awhile for the antibiotics to kick in, but when they did my daughter was quick to let us know who she missed… a little boy in her class that she is quite smitten with. She took to drawing pictures of them together, and naturally on her first day back to school she had to have me photograph her excitement that she would get to go see him again!
Awe – to be 4 years old again!
