Abby has pinkeye. I picked the girls up at the bus stop to take them to dance, and I didn't notice anything wrong with her, but in the car Sarah said Abby had something yellow on her face near her eye, and then Abby was almost asleep by the time we got to dance class so I knew she didn't feel good. Sure enough her eye was all goopy (is that a word?), and one of the mommies at dance is a nurse so she confirmed my suspicions. She'll have to miss school tomorrow. I just hope Sarah doesn't get it too! I don't understand why they're getting so sick - until this year they had rarely missed a day of school, but now it seems like they're getting all kinds of sicknesses and missing lots of school. I've already decided that they need the flu shot (or flu mist, probably), even though they haven't had one since they were infants. I just don't want to take that chance this year.
