(Above and the last photo in this post were taken three weeks before this post -- no blister >_< )
My daughter will turn three this Sunday ! I hope it's not too soon to announce it to everyone. It's so sad that my birthday girl can't celebrate her birthday with a crowd of friends and families. She is required to stay at home while she is infectious to avoid spreading the disease to others. I know, "infectious" is a weird word to describe my own daughter. I hate when it happened, but everyone must pass this phase at least once in their lifetime, I guess
She still gets lesions and blisters from the varicella infection I mentioned at the end of my previous post. I took her to a pediatrician at Tuesday and some of chickenpox/varicella's symptoms on her body has been relieved. Anyway, while she awakes, she will refuse my attempts to cut her nails. She can't prevent herself from scratching, and I'm afraid that the scrathing will cause more infections. She'd been told not to scratch and she agreed. But when she feels the itch, in a funny way, she innocently asks me "Can I scratch it ?" My poor daughter
Oh, did I forget to mention that my nanny's daughter will marry this sunday? Last week, the nanny asked me permission for taking a whole week off. That what made me taking a three days off from my office since wednesday and doing nothing but keeping the children and the house. No sewing or blogging. And my fabrics shop is officially neglected.
Back to the birthday. I don't order a special cake for her birthday. So, there will be no barbie cake that was ordered for last year's birthday. And there will be no dazzling princess-like dress like the manhattan dress I made for her second birthday anniversary *sobbing*
I've made a plan to make this cute pinafore from Ottobre Summer 2006 :
using this "Parade" print, a best seller (and hard to find) from Sarah Jane's fabric line :
Or maybe a pair of top and skirt using this cute Little Apples from Aneela Hoey ?
But today is Saturday, and the birthday is tomorrow ! I don't have time to sew T_T
My husband said that my daughter is just three years old and she doesn't even know what birthday celebration is, anyway. I agree. What more important for her is my love, attentions, kisses, cuddles, bedtime stories, back-scrubbing, or maybe just a walk to a local grocery shop to buy some snacks ?
I will always love you, my dear
