I thought Ro’s little cheeks looked a touch red yesterday, and sure enough, when she woke up this morn we could tell that she had the Slapped Cheek Disease that Ree had back on July 21. Figures we wouldn’t skate through this one with only one affected twinado. The good news though, is that (like her sister) Ro doesn’t feel bad at all. Her cheeks are red, but she doesn’t have any fever or achiness or any other problems. And also (like her sister), she was contagious before the redness showed up, in other words before she showed any signs of having it, which makes it a tad difficult to quarantine.
They’re still adorable to me, red cheeks and all. And I thought it was cute that they picked out matching dresses today. Hand-me-downs from their buddies H2 and S2, which came in the latest box o’ fun. Ree was careful to put a white flower in her hair and a pink one in Ro’s so “everyone will know who’s who.” I swear these girls must be able to smell when something new sneaks into their closet, because they find it every time.
Speaking of dresses, Wela Wear is now making adult wear. (Hee! My poor mom!) Sister-in-law Jane thought Ro and Ree’s dresses were just the thing and hit the Goodwill store to pick out her own material. Then she sweet-talked my mom into sewing a top and a dress for her. Cute!
And then you just know I couldn’t be the only one on the block without a custom piece of Wela Wear, so I picked out some Goodwill tees and got one too:
My mom and dad are on an antique auto trip for the next couple of weeks, and I’m guessing she didn’t pack her new serger. Oh well...
