So my poor little Dukes has been very ill with a high fever since Tuesday and we've had to cancel her birthday party. Luckily, she is still too young to really understand that she is missing out on anything. I think I am probably the most disappointed about it, having spent a certain amount of time planning and preparing and so forth.
There is nothing worse than being sick on your birthday. Other than perhaps, your sibling(s) being sick on your birthday- resulting in party cancellation but you feel fine. The most memorable one for me was when I was turning 8 or 9. I got the chicken pox and not only was I sick on my birthday but also missed out on the one and only time my parents took the family to the ice capades. (They brought me back a pennant. whoop-dee-doo) My sisters than proceeded to pick up the illness. I believe they eventually had a party for me, about a month after the actual date. But at that point, you know, there was no point. (much like celebrating your 21st birthday in Australia- another story, another time)
Have you ever been sick on your birthday?
PS. Don't worry, per the Doc, " it's a virus. and it's going around." ain't it always?
