talk about it more

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Nora caught a rash

I have been watching a fine, raised, red rash on Nora's chest and back for over a week now. It doesn't bother her a whit, and doesn't now nor has it had any other symptoms to go with it; but is not getting any better or worse, so I finally called the pediatrician about it. They, of course, wanted to see it. I remember calling in to ask about a rash on Fiona once on a nurse-line and the person actually said, "Oh great. Another phone rash..."

So I took her to the doctor, but it's only a viral exanthem. Hooray! Nothing catchy! Our pediatrician said it's just a biproduct of a virus-- which we all get regularly even if we're not laid low. She doubts Nora ever felt poorly, in fact, but she may have that rash for another three weeks nonetheless. Whoa.
