Festival of Words

Chubby Cheeks
Dimpled Chin
Rosy Lips
Teeth Within

Looks cute…isn’t it? 🙂

But Chubby cheeks only on right side, dimples only on left side (the right side ones disappearing into the chubbiness), rosy lips which have turned pale and teeth hidden under the silence, doesn’t look nice at all. 😦

Yesterday, Lil Love was diagnosed with Mumps, though she did receive her MMR vaccination on time. Doc said there’s nothing much we can do except give Paracetamol for pain relief for the next 4-5 days. He said vaccinations give only 80% surety against a disease. So there’s no 100% surety that a disease will not occur if you have taken vaccination against it. Of course, they help reduce the intensity.

Lil Love…a fighter she is, and eats up a lot of pain without complaining even once. A trait she has acquired from me and I am not very happy about it. Though I used to love her chubby cheeks when she was an infant, this swelling doesn’t make my naughty brat look any smarter. 😦

So with this going on, I didn’t have a mood to write anything much at this moment, just wanted to share that beginning tomorrow I have enrolled for a seven day blogging festival under the Write Tribe Festival of Words.

If you haven’t signed up yet, do it right away. Enrollments are still accepted. It truly is going to be fun.

So, Ready Steady and Go… 🙂

  1. I’m sorry to hear Lil Love has mumps. I am from the pre-MMR generation and had all three (though not at once!) I have distinct memories of sitting on my father’s knee in the middle of the night chanting “mumps in the dustbin, mumps in the dustbin”. I was a bridesmaid a couple of weeks later and I still looked like an overfed chipmunk. Hope she feels better soon.
