Anything you can do I can do better

Not that there's a lot of sibling rivalry between my kids, I mean, they are eight years apart. But my daughter is determined to skate at least as well as her brother, play sports better, and have more epic injuries.

With Josh I only had to watch him for a few hours or overnight to make sure he only had a bumped head and not an actual concussion.


But my daughter ... a trip to the ER, two days later a follow-up with her regular doctor that leads to a week of bed-rest. Have you ever tried to make a 10 year old not suffering from a fever stay in bed??? It's impossible! (OK, not bed-rest per se, but the girl won't stay down and rest!!)  The weekend will be a long one for her. And she's going to miss out on a field trip to the California Science Center before she's cleared to go back to school. Guess what I will be doing this summer? But that's OK, because I love the Science Center and all the museums at Expo Park. 

Joy is so bored she asked for all of her homework for the week. I guess there's only so much Netflix even she can watch.

Do you have any tips for recovering from a concussion?
