Everybody has good days and bad days. Today Emily is having a sick day. Her stomach aches and her throat feels sore. Fortunately Father is home to take care of her. He puts Emily to bed and tucks her in with her stuffed animals. But Emily wants more. She needs her blanket, and her favorite doll, and she wants her hair in ponytails. Father can barely keep up! And before either of them knows it, Emily and Father find they've turned this sick day into a special day together.
