Okmrsmommy-36, CPmom to DD-16 and DS-14
To my surprise, when we dropped the kids off at home, her mother was not surprised to hear about her dds rash - seems she has had rashes like this even with mild viral colds - and the doc explained that any virus could cause a rash like the chicken pox, it just was not that common. So, maybe some strange genetic flaw? Seems paternal grandma probably in fact has NOT had the actual chicken pox so many times, just different viral rashes. Lo and Behold, my dd came down with the same rash a week after. Ds had a cold, but no rash.
So, basically, I cancelled all of our Christmas plans for a darn "common" cold.

with regards to illness, the only times i feel like a heel is when my ds2(who seems to get viruses more than the others) tells me he doesnt feel good before school, and i cant decide if hes really sick, or just "punky", so i send him and he promptly calls me that morning to come get him because he has a fever. i really feel like a dog. its hard to tell sometimes.
one time he had a rash all over his face, and i couldnt figure out what it was, but thought maybe he was allergic to the red dye in something he ate. it did not look at all like poison ivy to me. my dh took him to the doctor, and when dr. walked in, he said, thats poison ivey. dh said, beth was sure it wasnt, and dr said, tell beth, thats why i get paid the big bucks. he is so funny. great doctor, and when the kids are sick gets them better, but will joke when its not a serious issue. i love my pediatrician.
go easy on yourself sweetie!! you're doing great!
Her teacher didn't catch it, her piano teacher didn't catch it, her Brownie leader didn't catch it, her art teacher didn't even catch it, and these people are all (excluding the Brownie leader) people who have worked with kids FOREVER, and work with them every day.
To be honest, her teacher and principal were shocked b/c she IS reading at such a high level at such a young age. In the words of her principal, "that is one focused little girl."....lol. I can't imagine how hard she was having to try to read before. poor baby!
On the other hand...she looks AWESOME in glasses! She picked out these lilac colored ones in the Barbie collection. They are kind of a rectangular shape, but angled at the edges. I'll have to take some pictures and share them! :)
So...how is your trip anyway? Aren't you still gone? When are ya coming back? :( I miss my chat buddy!
DS was born cross-eyed and had eye surgery at 8 months, which completely corrected his farsightedness. Of course, people seemed surprised that I took an infant to an eye doctor, and if I hadn't experienced it myself, I probably wouldn't have known what was wrong.
I would guess that your DD's headaches have to do with forcing her eyes to focus up close, and she must have been able to do that, since she didn't have problems reading, so now you've solved the problem. Why continue to worry about it?
