SO Emma's friend, Lauren, spent the night and Sunday morning we made Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Within 30 minutes of eating the child was covered in hives. Her entire back, face, ears, and neck. I called her parents and they immediately picked her up. She has Strep and Fifth's Disease. Lovely.

A few random things:
I have so much to do today that I am avoiding life by catching up on blogs. I have several teacher conferences this week and next, Goody. Em missed the bus for the first time b/c she couldn't find her shoes so now she is paying me to drive her. Van is still not running, I hope this week is the week. Someone is stealing food out of the pantry at night, of course it's not the fruit, it's the sweet stuff. I read Frankee's blog and the sister she is staying with is using Meth so she is miserable. Frankee also wrote she is getting her daughter this weekend but I am not sure it is true.

If it's any consolation, Fifth's is not contagious once the rash appears. Of course the night before...

Being that I'm in a situation right now where a lot of people think I "should" make different choices, and the choices they tell me to make don't work for me, I actually feel quite curious as to what reasoning is going on with Frankee, that makes the choices she's making seem more appealing than the choices she's passing up. I guess that will remain a mystery...

Meanwhile, I hope your kids don't get sick!

LOL! At first, I thought your pancakes were the cause of the hives. I hope your kids avoid the diseases. With all your kids, someone would still be sick at spring break!
