growing pains

Ah, the fake smile...
When what she really feels like is this.
That should read 20 mm.. or 2 cm. 

While Keira has been feeling feverish with us wondering, is it a cold? A flu? (psst! It's a cold plus ear & throat infection. Yaaaaaaay. So. Much. Fun.)
What's making this bout of crummy sickness over the top are some growing pains. Kiki's been complaining for the past 3 days of some back and leg pain. Indeed, while trying to explain where the pain was coming from, big fat tears rolled down her eyes. Keira wanted to see how much she's grown and low and behold, she's grown 2 cm since January. Spring *is* the time for growth spurts... just wish it didn't come with fever, aches and pains.

Hmm, and also the need to buy new jogging pants for school gym. Nah, she can live with too short joggers til it gets warmer.. hehehe.
