Smiley Face

Pinkster has the flu.
We had flu shots, so WTF?

There are so many lurgys going around this year: the fever & vomits, the fever & ear-aches, and now a return of H1N1 (Swine) Flu!

My poor little mite has been coughing and coughing, her temperature shot up into the 40s. After she saw the doctor we were told she has to wear a face mask if she goes out in public.

At first she used a pretty one from her doctor-dress-up kit.

It didn't cheer her up enough, so we thought about making her another more cheerful one.
We had us a few discussions about how being ill can make you not feel like smiling, so this is what we came up with.

It's a proto-type, we're still working on the final version, but its a start. I used a piece of left-over quilted pillow protector remvoing one layer of wadding. It's a bit thick having two layers of fabric with light interfacing between, but I fugure it stops the germs escaping better than just a layer of cotton.

But most importantly; for now her smile is back
