Sick Girl

Kendall came home yesterday feeling sick. Not allergies, and she could recognize that, telling us it was a cold. She lay in her room, only coming out a few times. She lay in bed in the evening a bit with me, while Tia napped, and we chatted. She had two tests today, but wasn’t doing well. She didn’t want to make them up, but wasn’t sure if she’d feel OK.

When I got her up this morning, she started to move, but said she felt bad, so I let her sleep in. I got Delaney up and to school and then took a call downstairs in the office. Then I got a text:

“Will you read to me?”

From Kendall. She was in my bed, and I said I’d be up shortly.

She’s been working through this book for school. She enjoys it, but she’s gotten behind with her busy life and needs to finish this by the end of the weekend. I lay there for about 30 minutes, reading to her, getting another 30 pages done before I had to go to work.

After that she went for a nap. It was neat to read with her. I miss that with the kids as they’ve gotten older. Nice that she also had me help her continue to work through things for school.
