She had a high-ish fever, but no other symptoms. We figured it was a virus and her fever broke after about 36 hours. She was crankier than usual, but otherwise fine. Until the rash started.
I don't remember getting any rash diseases when I was kid (beyond chicken pox) and I feel like my kids get Little House on the Prairie diseases here in southern MD. Faith had Scarlett freaking Fever and now Cordelia got this virus called Roseola.
She's totally fine now, but she looks like she has the measles. Don't worry, it's just body herpes.
A non-sickness "I mean, seriously now" moment occurred last week as a product of Faith doing a week of "Photography Camp" at her school. One of the things that I really love about my kids' school is how it's pretty diverse (especially considering the area) so some of her classmates have unusual names. She has occasionally mentioned playing with "Sho-shon" and at one point even told me that she picked her up. I assumed that some kid had a weird name (or that Faith was butchering the pronunciation) and reminded her that it's not nice to pick up other kids because you might hurt them. I got a sigh and an eye roll for that. She's a very advanced 5 year old.
When I was looking through the pictures she took on my camera, I found a surprising picture.

The reason that I was surprised by this was that Faith has never once mentioned a freaking bunny at school and this kid is obsessed with animals. I asked her "There is a bunny at school?" and she said "Yeah, that's Sho-son."
I mean, seriously now.
Also, there is a lizard at school named Ting Ting. Of course. I'm pretty sure it's a gecko, but without picture evidence I'm not sure it's safe to assume anything.
Have you ever completely misunderstood something your kid told you?
