So it goes

Weekend plans when a kid wakes feverish: the soft sound of a house of cards falling flat to the table, with a cat puking in the background.

Piper slept through breakfast and woke complaining of the same headache she had going to bed. Was teary when I said that a fever of 101 was enough to rule out going to her friend’s birthday party, but when I said that she could watch Frozen for the first time by way of compensating for her loss, she seemed mollified.
