She wet her knickers yesterday at playgrouup (rare) and then went to the toilet, or asked to go, every half an hour.

Last night she was feeling sorry for herself, no appetite and hot hot hot.

Calpol, then bed, had to readminister in the night (and sleep with her!).

Ok ish this morning, but MIL has kept her off playgroup as she says she is not herself.

Now dd1 can be a bit of a drama queen, and MIL is a clucking granny, do you think I need to go home and take her to the docs?

dh has phoned and she is eating ice cream.....

I think she is ok if you ask me, maybe take her tomorrow?

no, i'd take her today.

a urine infected child might still be quite perky.

but they can be nasty business if left untreated.

I asked her if she was sore expat and she said 'I don't know' and her little face crumpled up

I hate it when they are ill.

piffle - good idea, will try and find suitable container (!!).

At least she is with MIL, she will be in her element plumping cushions and peeling grapes.
