Bianca woke up pretty happy, but then at around 12pm I got a call from the school. Bianca just wasn't herself and complaining of a sore tummy. So I went to get her and brought her home. For the rest of the afternoon she was very clingy and pretty sad. So I guess there is a chance tomorrow morning that we would rather keep her at home, but we'll see. I really really hate steroids. I cannot wait for Saturday. However our steroid dose isn't nearly as bad as the dose little Kyah was on for around 3 weeks. Bianca's daily dose is 5mg a day for 5 days each month. Little Kyah was on 20mg a day for 3 weeks and they have now lowered it to 10mg. Now that is tough!!!
Bianca is pretty disappointed with the advertising strategies of some of the toy companies. For a while now she really really wanted Father Christmas to bring her one of this Fur Real pets (the white one) and then you can put it into a little pink handbag and take it with you wherever you go. The idea of this toy is that it resembles a real dog. So yesterday I asked her if she really is sure she wants to ask for it. I showed her how it doesn't really do much other than move its head (making a bit of a mechanical sound in the process), makes something that resembles a barking sound and other than that it doesn't do anything. So she stood there saying, "but I thought it would follow me". "Well yes, it does, but only because you put it in the handbag and carry it wherever you go". So in the end she decided that "no she doesn't want this anymore". So now she'll ask Father Christmas to bring her a big surprise (but not the doggie), oh and a Rapunzel DVD (which I know "Father Christmas" already has in stock). So a bit of a lesson to learn, that not all toys are the way they show them on TV.
