I don’t know if it was affected by the previous haze. Most of the children in kindergarten had cough and fever symptoms. Fat Bao was not spared. From Friday to today, the coughing keeps on. The child’s illness is really troublesome. It’s not an exaggeration to describe it. Fortunately, he is now willing to take medicine, otherwise I really don’t know what to do. I look forward to an early recovery. At the beginning of the month, I wanted to make a gingerbread house. Actually, it’s more accurate. I wanted to do it for Christmas last year. At that time, I drew the blueprints, but in the end it was still anticlimactic. This year I finally got my wish.
