The plan was that Ellie would come wake me up, and we’d go make breakfast while Kim slept in. However, Kim had been awake since 6 am by the time Ellie came into our room, so the girls went back to Ellie’s room and spent time together.
When I got up, I made breakfast, but Ellie wasn’t hungry (unusual, if you know Ellie). What’s more, she wanted to go back to bed—which she did, by herself, and went right to sleep. Sure enough, when she woke up a few hours later, she had a temperature. So Mother’s Day became a sick day, but it wasn’t bad: Kim and Ellie were able to nap, Kim got some gardening done, and we even got out to Carkeek Park when Ellie felt better later in the afternoon.
Happy mother’s day!
