Another hectic day for me. Just brought DD3 to the doctor today as her fever has not subsided. I've been self medicating for the past 2 days but I just have an uneasy feeling so decide to bring her the doctor, just to ease my mind. Doc diagnosed as common cold and cough, and I just have to make sure she drinks enough fluid.
Looking after 3 kids is no easy feat. Having them all fall sick at the same time and I have to administer medicine together is yet another headache. I have to record down who took what medicine at what time. Each child has 2 medicine, 1 for runny nose and 1 for cough. I need to constantly take temp of all 3 and if fever arises, I need to give Paracetamol. So many things to do! How on earth am I going to remember all these?
Oh well... with such an "eventful" day, I need to cook simple food (when do I ever cook complicated dishes? Hahaha!)
I decided to cook chicken rice after going through my fridge. I always try to remove as much fats and skin before cooking so as to minimise eating all those fats. My gfs always say I'm such a health freak. But honestly speaking, I don't think I'm such a freak. I just reduce consumption for my family as much as I could.
I will ususally give the chicken drumstick and thigh to the kids. Instead of cooking fragrant rice, I just cook plain white rice.
I'm not sure if anyone have heard of this but there is this saying that a person should not consume chicken if he is having a cough. I do not know if there is any truth in it or it is just a myth. Let's hope their cough don't get worst after eating chicken :P
