The "David Cook Book"

Our whole family has been ill this week, but we are finally getting over it. Charlotte wanted to go to bed at 6:00. I put her down but she woke up at 7:15 and we let her get up and watch "American Idol" with us. Charlotte was reading a new book from the library and I asked her what she was reading and she said, "This is the David Cook Book." (Those of you who watch AI will get this, the rest of you, maybe not......) She is just the cutest thing.
We took her to the Dr. this morning because we'd been worried because it seems like a lot of her hair has been falling out and her skin color seems extremely pale. Her vegetarianism (or carbism, I should say) had us thinking that her diet might be the cause. They pricked her finger to test her iron levels and she just sat there, didn't even cry. What a brave girl. Turns out her iron levels are fine, Dr. said to go ahead and try to get her to take a multivitamin with iron, but not too worry about the hair loss and paleness.
Bridget (our nanny) was over today and I asked her to tell Bridget what happened to her finger at the Dr. She looked at me and replied, "I don't want to talk about it."
E had a sad day today too. She woke this morning crying and pretty much didn't stop until bedtime. This virus needs to run it's course already!!
