Mackenzie has had enough of things being all about her little sister. The other night, she was being a bit loud so we told her to lower her voice so she wouldn't wake up her sister. That didn't go over well at all. She told us God made her voice loud and we needed to get rid of her sister. The next day I was trying to explain how babies can't handle being sick (Mackenzie has a cold) and that if they get sick they have to go to the hospital. The wheels started turning- she then asked, "Do they stay at the hospital?" Hmmm...
I feel so bad for her right now- and so helpless in making her feel better. After 20 days of antibiotics and a month out if school, she returned to school and caught something. Now, the cough has returned and daddy is the one taking care of her. She can't get near her sister or touch any of her things. I can only imagine she feels excluded. We go back to the doctor tomorrow. She needs her momma and her momma needs her. Hopefully she will not be contagious and I will be able to care for her. Her situation is one of the hardest things I am dealing with now. I just look at her, messy hair, not matched clothes, eating junk, and entertaining herself while dad is on meetings and it makes me so sad. Her Grandma Daniels is coming in 2 days, so hopefully the situation will improve and we will both be better by the time she leaves.
