Since yesterday, my daughter has been sleeping off her fever. Though, she's still showing some energy, I did notice that it dwindled a bit because of what she's feeling. When she's awake, she would ask her father if she can watch the Mulan movie again from the portable DVD player we bought her for her educational videos. Yes, she has watched this movie several times already. Now I think I already know the reason why. Apart from the fact that it is her favorite movie, she wants to watch it over and over again so she can master her favorite song "Reflection" which happens to be the movie's theme song. I'll let you in on her version of this song in another post. However, I have got to say that it sure looks like we need to add speakers to her player. I figured that playing the music with quality speakers might be able to help her pick up the right words. Hopefully, when the audio is already loud and clear enough, she will be able to hear and sing the lyrics of the song correctly.
The little girl has been having slight fever and has been absent from school since Monday. I suspected she acquired something viral which started last Sunday, the day after we went to COMELEC. I remembered it was drizzling consistently that day; and although we did bring an umbrella with us, it wasn't enough to keep her from getting a little wet. However, husband said, she already had signs of a bad cold even before we went out on a drizzling Saturday morning. Oh, my poor daughter! Thankfully, she's getting better after a couple of days' rest. Still, husband and I get a little frantic sometimes because we are basically just observing and trusting our parenting instincts. Oh, how she loved to go back to school already but we thought she needed sufficient rest. Hopefully, she wouldn't be taking that medicine for fever by tomorrow. We let her drink medicine before bedtime tonight because her temperature is starting to go up again. Oh virus, if you're the culprit, please go away!
