Because she was sick
Sommer was a wreck last week. She fell asleep in some funny positions, she was just so tired. Poor thing.
I knew she was sick but I didn't know it was strep throat until yesterday. Laine had her 5-year check up and the dr swabbed her throat because it looked bad. The nurse came back with the positive quick-result diagnosis and I asked that Sommer get checked too because she was sick first. The nurse did it but I could see her reluctance since I didn't have an appointment for Sommer. Then she told me that she wasn't really supposed to do it because then she had to interrupt the dr in her next appointment. But please. Did they really expect me to bring Sommer back later for a 2-second throat swab? So now the girls are on the mend. And now we've had strep in our house for the first time. I'm pretty sure I started it but I can't recall having it before so I didn't know, I just had a sore throat for 3 weeks, two of those we were out of town so I didn't go to the dr. And Cannon had it at the end of our trip and just suffered through. Now I know. Another mother-of-the-year award for me.
And this picture was just a funny one on the way home. As you can see, Ridge unbuckled so he could get a better look at Sommer's messy-faced sleeping.
