Yesterday, was a long day listening to my two girls grumble about not being able to go to school. When I was a kid, I would have longed for the day I could stay home from school and watch movies on a big screen TV all day. But alas, yesterday was the day for the Valentine's Day parties. Today, there was no school scheduled since we had parent/student/teacher conferences last night. Unfortunately, ours turned into a one parent/one teacher conference.
I knew the only reason the girls were looking forward to school was because of all the treats they were expecting to receive. Fortunately, we have the best neighbor in the world. She called us early yesterday and asked if we needed anything. Our 4 yr. old had taken a ride with her the day before and planned on going again yesterday, till we actually took her temperature and she was well over 100. So...the day of complaining began, not before our neighbor brought us an unopened package of Children's Tylenol.
Little did we know that our neighbor was not done with her acts of kindness. She stopped in both classrooms after school and brought both our girls the best medicine of the day. Valentines!! My girls suddenly went from sickbed, to celebrating.
Not the best day in my books, but I tracked everything.
