For a little over a week, now, Claire has been complaining, once in a while, that her tummy hurts. Her appetite is normal (she doesn't eat much on her best day), and she's "regular" if you know what I mean. It doesn't affect her activity level. It seems to be right around her belly button. If I touch and say, "Does it hurt here?" she'll consistently say yes right around her belly button. She has no fever. She doesn't seem bothered by it otherwise, except that two or three times a day she has to stop what she's doing and say, "I hurt Mommy."
I probably need to take her to the doctor for her allergies, anyway. I'm reasonably certain, given the number of times a day I wipe her nose, that she has seasonal allergies just like I do. But I don't even know how to describe it to Dr. MWMH... "She seems to complain of a tummy ache more often than I'd expect her to, considering that I'm a decent cook?"
Any ideas what it could be? And please don't Google and come back with something scary, because it's a holiday weekend and the soonest I'm going to get her to the doc is Tuesday, and that's a long time to maintain a panic.
In other news, the internet's really quiet this weekend. It's annoying me. BJ's at the race today, which means he left at 6 and won't be home until... 10? 11? Who knows? I think the girls and I are going to get dressed and go shopping. We need another dresser for their bedroom. And cat food.
We know how to party. What are you doing this Memorial Day weekend? Can I come too?
(that sounds pathetic - I meant it to sound funny and ironic - so go back and re-read it funny and ironic, instead of sad)
