Girl time, and fever

Safa and I went to get pedicures yesterday. It had been a long time since we had some girly time together, so that was a lot of fun. I also want her to be fully relaxed for the next two weeks at school. She doesn't seem to take school stress as well as Hamza does, and they both have SATs, starting Tuesday. I thought this would be a good way for her to start the week. They both have performed above the 90th percentile consistently in previous years, and are striving for a good result this year too.

We noticed yesterday that Bilal was a little bit down; he actually wanted to sit in my lap, which is rare, and his appetite wasn't as super as it has been lately. This morning he retched a bit when I offered him breakfast, and he's really just not been hungry. He's also been quite easy to cry and a little more clingy than usual. Of course I really don't stress about the eating part any more, it's a blessing that he's done so well, and I'm sure he'll pick up soon. But he woke up after a long nap with a temperature of 100.2. Not too bad, but obviously enough to make him a bit more puny. He has a very slight runny nose, and otherwise no symptoms. I've already checked his ears, and they are clear. So, maybe a virus, or maybe it's teething again. He's just got a couple more molars left, and seems to want to gnaw on things more for the last couple of days. Sounds like a pretty straightforward explanation. Whatever it is, hopefully it will be self limiting, and I sure hope he keeps his bugs to himself. I don't want his older siblings getting sick during SAT week!
