Spotty girl

Maisie can be one funny little girl and the other night she decided that she wanted to be a spotty girl so she covered herself with dozens of little stickers.

IMG_9082eI had no problem with her doing this nor did I have a problem with her wanting to wear her spots when we went out for dinner.  Eammon wasn’t so sure about her keeping her spots on outside of the house but when you’re five things like wearing dress-up clothes, Princess gowns, tiaras or even sporting dozens of spots hardly garners a second look and generally just makes people smile.

IMG_9079eOf course she was also sporting blue lips from a Fun Dip but as she was covered with so many stickers I doubt that anyone noticed and if they did, it just added to the charm.

Today my always-up-by-7am girl actually slept until 9:10 so I knew that something was up with her and not in a good way.  She seemed okay during the morning playing outside for a bit with K & A and then we had to go to her gym as she had tryouts for a special team.  Maisie happily did the tryouts but I could tell that she just wasn’t quite right and definitely not at 100%.  After the tryouts she said that her throat was hurting so I asked if she wanted to go home but she said that she wanted to attend her regular practice.  As I couldn’t see anything red or wrong with her throat and she wasn’t running a fever I went along with what she wanted.  We had an hour off before her regular practice so we went out for a quick lunch and then returned to the gym.  I left her there for her 3 hours letting her coaches know that if needed, to call and I’d pick her up early but she stayed the entire practice and her coaches said that she did fine during practice.  Once home Maisie ate her dinner and enjoyed an extra long bubble bath followed by some playtime but something isn’t right and I’m hoping that it’s not strep again because once this summer was more than enough.  I’m hoping that when she wakes tomorrow she’ll feel perfect!
