Right after I wrote my post yesterday, Julia threw up and has had a sore throat and fever ever since, so I am bringing her in to the clinic this morning for a strep test. It wouldn't be Spring Break if poor Julia didn't end up sick.
I guess this is a reason to be glad we're not on some warm trip to Florida or Mexico or Hawaii or Nashville or wherever, like so many families we know. It would be worse to have a truly sick child while far away on vacation than when home in your own town with your own clinic and pediatrician.
And that's called "the bright side."
