My Little Sunshine wants a rainbow ..

I quite busy to take care of my sick baby since last week . She complained about throat-ache after came back from Science Centre with dad. And it got worse the day after, her body temperature so high, i knew that I can't just wait . So, we decided to take her to Emergency Room. That was late night, and we came back home 5 hours latter. The result came negative. It was mean, she just got common flu, no need to worry.

2 days after, she still sick and more worse than before. Sometime she look normal in the morning, but always has high fever at night , got bad dream and screamed alot. And with the swine flu out-break around the world, I more and more worry. Again, I took her to pediatrician. This time, doctor said.. 'she is actually healthy kid, just common flu and no antibiotic need, just buzz with vitamins only'

Hmm.. i can take a breath a little bit, no need to worry.. but honest to GOD, I couldn't do regular activity, she just want me 'around' her . That was probably good for me too. To take a rest for while.

No bake(ing), No 'hard' cook(ing), No chatt(ing), No face book(ing) !! LOL. But, you know me, I can't just relax do nothing, so I made a little toy for her, to make her smile . It was hard little bit, since I have no basic sewing skill, and finally I made it after 3 days struggle to put leg together hahahahah..

Finally after 10 days , she back on the track, she feels more better and already has special request, she said : "mommy, I want a rainbow cake"

Oh, well.. its time to back to the kitchen :D
