And now, some animal cuteness from this week.

may17 - babybunny

We saw this cute little baby bunny Thursday morning when I was about to drop little one off for morning care. She spotted it and of course I had to stop and take a few shots. It was so so cute. We have quite a few bunnies and even teh occasional fox on campus. It’s pretty awesome…

may17 - babychicks

And the chicks that hatched in the lower school science lab are getting big. They are so adorable and I try to visit them every day. Wish we could build a little chicken coop in the backyard and keep one. But I don’t think that our HOA would look too kindly on that.

Our weekend looks a lot quieter now then what was on the schedule, namely, 3 birthday parties. None of which we will be attending since middle was diagnosed with mononucleousis yesterday. Poor thing has been feeling out of sorts, on and off, for the past few weeks. I dismissed it because she never ran a fever and things have been going around again. And she seemed okay most days, it was only here and there that she complained. This week though, it seemed worse than before so hubby took her to the doctor Thursday and he (the doctor) ordered some blood work since he suspected that that’s what she has.

Yesterday, after I got home from work (daddy stayed home with her again), and still hadn’t heard from anyone (slowly going out of my mind) I called and after dealing with the ditz of a nurse was told that the covering pediatrician, one that I don’t particulary care for ever since she called my son fat, in front of him, mind you, would possibly call me later that evening or Saturday morning. I was close to taking her head off at that point but tried to stay cool. Luckily, the covering physician had pity on us and called a little after five, confirming the mono diagnosis. I will have to wait until Monday morning  to speak to middle’s regular pediatrician to find out what the next steps are, since, as the covering physician put it, “he’s the one that saw her and takes care of her, would know better what to do.”

It could be that she’s allowed to go to school but has to take it super easy — no dance, no running around at recess etc. — or will have to stay home the rest of the school year, about a month, or something in between. We’ll have to see. I’m hoping, that she’ll be able to attend a few things for her move from lower to middle school and not miss out.

I feel bad for my little bundle of energy, especially since she doesn’t always feel sick… I tried explaining to her that that’s how it would go but that she needs to give her body lots of rest and cannot over-do. She has been sleeping an aweful lot and I imagine, it will be like this for quite some time still.

I hope, everyone has a great weekend. Busy or not!

xo, Susi

    Well, there you go – you got to do the 4 fill ins, and I just did not have enough time last week (today I thought was a little late…)…
    I really hope that middle kid gets healed in a hurry, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
    That little bunny is cute, but the chicks… OMG 🙂

      Thanks! She’s hanging in there. The chicks are adorable and growing so very fast. Don’t think they’ll be able to stay at school much longer.

    poor thing — it must be so hard for her, when she’s used to being a ball of energy. I hope she gets better soon and doesn’t have to miss out on too many things.

    mmmm, pumpkin spice. Always in season as far as I’m concerned.

      She’s hanging in there. Went back to school today but came to the lab for last hour – at that point she was exhausted.
