Alphabet Bath

I thought that the coming of summer will mean less sick days for Maya...and of course, I was wrong. Last week she began feeling bad and ended up having a very high fever for two days and nights. Believe me, it was so scarry! Her fever wouldn't go down for more than, lets say,  one hour and then would spike up again.. It is most frustrating not to be able to help your child and to watch her going limp and feverish....The only thing that helped were long baths and we were lucky she likes water. And in order to make her stay in the bath longer I put into the water foam letters, in the beginning the ones in Hebrew, then added the latin ones as well, and numbers and all kinds of foam stickers and so we played , makking "alphabet soup" and fishing , even if it was 3 o'clock in the morning.
Now she is better, my sweet daughter and I wait for the summer holiday more that she does... 


Unfortunately, before this, something even worse happened...but about that, next time, now I have to go and play with Maya...

I'm so sorry to hear that Maya is still suffering from frequent illnesses. I'm always so thankful that my kids don't get sick often because when they do I'm a mess. I hope she's feeling better now. That does look like a refreshing bath.

Hi Simcha,
yes, Maya is feeling better, thank you...We had some tough years since she started kindergarten...I hope that going to scholl will change that...
