Cecilia will be one on Sunday, and I’ve been planning a big bash to celebration the occasion for the past couple of months. Unfortunately, today we had to postpone the event. Needless to say, I’m a little disappointed about it. However, I’m pretty sure that Cecilia is more upset since she’s the one with Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease.
Doesn’t that sound horrible? Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. It sounds like something that kids acquire when they have inadequate parents or an illness you get when you travel to a tropical climate. In reality, it’s just a virus. She actually caught it from a trip to the YMCA pool last Friday. It started as a nasty rash on her bottom a few days ago, and this morning I noticed blisters on her feet. Apparently, it’s normal for the groin area to breakout, but I guess Hand, Foot, Mouth, and Butt disease wasn’t as catchy.
The good news is that she should be much better by her birthday. We decided, however, to go ahead and postpone the party. Close to half of our guests have young children, and it’s really hard to convince people to come over when your child is recovering from an illness and shouldn’t be contagious. I’m disappointed, but Cecilia won’t know any differently. Sunday night we’ll celebrate with family. Later in the week, we’ll meet up with her best friend (who also caught it from the Y). Then we’ll have a big party in late July. The girl will think all birthdays last an entire month!
