Well, it's not actually my aching head, it's G's. P and I both had severe migraines as children -- mine started when I was 4, his at around 8 or 9 -- and so we always suspected it was only a matter of time before G developed them too. Sure enough, they kicked in the year she turned 6 (we did take her to the doctor at the time, but only to confirm what we already knew it was), and now she gets one every couple of months. Tonight is one of those nights, and we've already been through the vomiting stage and are now on to the sleeping-in-a-dark-room stage. Poor girl.
