Yeah, I can do that. Make sure Sophia takes all of her medicine. No matter how much she doesn’t want to. Make her do the thing she doesn’t want to do. I got it.

She’s pretty attached to her butterfly toothbrush, but I’m sure we can find another one . . . probably . . .

Sophia’s pretty good about drinking water. Normally I’d go for tea, but I don’t think I need a caffeinated Sophia stuck at home from school. Bad times for everybody.
