Birthday Blues

Today is Rachel's 3rd birthday, but she was too sick to care.  I am so glad that we had our big celebration over the weekend, so that she wasn't miserable on her party day.  Rae stayed with Granny all day and did very little but sit on Granny's lap.  She's feverish and whiney and utterly miserable.  Her mouth is so full of sores that she can't eat.  She's hungry (she's had nothing but icy pops to eat) but every bite/swallow hurts and she cries.  At our house, the birthday tradition is that the Birthday Girl/Boy gets to pick the restaurant for supper.  Rachel couldn't go out and couldn't eat, so we had take-out pizza and ate with her looking on longingly and fussing.  (Isn't that awful?)  I did manage to distract her this evening with an art project, so this will have to do for a birthday portrait.
Happy Birthday, sweet girl.  I hope you feel better soon!
