T turned 5 years old a few weeks ago. He’s gotten so big. We ended up with hand, foot and mouth disease. It was awful. T ended up with it on his actual birthday, and ultimately we had to cancel his birthday party. A daycare kid brought it to us. I was sort of furious. All of my kids got it. Our littlest man had the worst of it. He had marks all over him, blistered and scabbed up. He’s picked all the scabs and currently has scars. Some of the blisters ended up becoming huge and it caused his skin to peel and he has some major marks on his feet because of it. It was a rough few weeks for us.
We had a cake for T though and just celebrated with just our kids. It wasn’t much, but he doesn’t seem to be too bothered by it.
