Don't know nothin'

The only drawback about my job is that it takes me so far, far away from my kids. If something urgent happened, I'm an hour and a half away. I guess it would be an hour if I could convince a very nice coworker to lend me his car. Jeremy's a little better, he's an hour away from the kids.

Today at 9 am, Edda's school called me an told me that they thought she had impetigo - a la Amy Winehouse - so one of us needed to bolt back home and get Edda to take her to the doctor. It's basically a glorified pimple that's on her chin and it's contagious and the school doesn't want us back tomorrow. I'm a little skeptical that it's anything more than a glorified pimple, now I'm worried that she's going to be home everytime she gets a pimple which may be every other week or so since she's constantly mouthing and slobbery. So since today Jeremy basically spent 2 hours and ten dollars going to work and promptly turning around again, I'm staying home tomorrow morning to put ointment on her pimple which will promptly be wiped off and ingested by the mouthing.

It's been kind of a long week, I'm too beat to load the photos up so you can see the pimple, it'll have to be tomorrow.

Oh I do understand - although we do not have the pimple/impetigo confusion but we do deal with the "puking - is it real or is it reflux?" conundrum. Always something fun.
