Gili Goes to School
I've gotten a lot of exercise this week taking her to school. Usually I put her in the Baby Bjorn and walk to the bus stop and from the stop to her school, and then when I'm alone, I walk the whole way. Yesterday I forgot my bus card and walked home 30 minutes with her in the Baby Bjorn. My back is a little sore, but after having her away all day, I like to travel with her close. When she faces me, we can talk, and when she faces forward, she leans her sweet head on my chest. Either way I get to smell her and give her kisses the whole time.
Today a young woman came in to work with the kids in shiatsu / reflexology. Sunday the class has water therapy / hydrotherapy. Gili is only allowed in with a letter from Professor Amir saying she is not contagious, or at least that it is safe for her to go in with other children. When I asked Professor Amir about such a letter months ago, he said that all children of preschool age should be considered contagious. But no one likes that response. It's annoying that Gili is singled out because she was born with CMV, even though she is less likely to have an active infection than other snotty-nose children.
