Hand, Foot and Mouth disease hit our house last month. It is a very annoying disease. It hit Declan first but it took us a couple of days to realize it. He took a normal nap one day, but then after he got up he was really clingy and lethargic and had a mild fever. He ended up going back to bed by like 6:30 and slept all night. The next morning we played tennis and he was really whiny. When we got home we discovered that he had pooped and had a horrible rash. We figured that was why he was whiny. By the next day he had spots on his face near his mouth but just sort of looked like zits. It wasn't until later that day that Brennan and I finally connected the dots. Besides that first day when he was feverish and lethargic (really only a few hours) he always acted completely normal while he had it. So why is it so annoying? Because the kids feel fine but you are stuck at home and it lasts forever. Tatum got it a few days later but her case was even more mild. She only got a few spots and again had one day of feeling really lousy right before the spots appeared.
This picture was taken before Church when Tatum wasn't sick yet but Declan had to stay home. Hence, his outfit. :) Luckily our stupidity in taking Tatum to Church didn't infect anyone.
Speedy Gonzales.The next time we went out she had it all figured out. It was much easier than I feared!
