The kids are sick. They are all having running nose, cough, and slight fever. The two pupils though went back to school after being absent yesterday. The youngest is currently sleeping beside me as I blog. I’ve been monitoring his temperature ever since this morning cause it has been jumping from 37.4 degrees celsius to 38.6. I’ve been sponge bathing him using lukewarm water every now and then. My husband advised me to do so to cool him down so that his temperature will not rise that’s why I am diligently doing it. I hope he gets better cause he’d been throwing tantrums all day. Good thing, we have his Ate’s “vodoo doll” (that’s what they call Ambrichie’s big dolls) which I always use as a scare tactic to make the youngest behave and be quiet. It usually works but not so much today 🙁
It has been raining since I got back from Manila last Saturday and I believe that the sudden change in temperature is causing this menace. Is their a typhoon again? or just monsoon rains.
Franz already lost his appetite. He doesn’t even like to drink his milk. That’s why I decided to cook the kids’ favorite chicken adobo. This recipe is one of my nephews and niece’s favorites. Every time we ask them what they want for dinner, they will always request for adobo or egg. So here’s another adobo recipe that Mammy and I often cook. I know you people have your own adobo with pineapple recipe and I hope you can share it with us 🙂
By the way, when your little one has a fever do not bundle them up – no blankets, no jackets. Just make them use light clothing. Also bathe them with lukewarm water or just sponge bath them – focus on their lower and upper torso. Do not rub them with alcohol. AND if your kid’s fever persist, consult a doctor.
