I refuse to work late and miss time with Ben so I've brought work home a few times (and only once or twice neglected to do the work once I finally put my feet up! Tell me why it seems like I'm constantly doing housework while E sits and gets to play with Button!!)
Anyways - so catch up: I made some food. On Fridays. hashtag FoodieFriday!
and clothes - I Wore. On Wednesdays. hashtag WardrobeWednesday!
No, really. I think the last I really posted was early September, so we've done a lot! There'll be some regularly scheduled series (back on track with ) interspersed with some updating, and first up:
Back in mid-September, Ben's kick-ass daycare had a birthday party! Their birthday party - they'd been open for one year! So one Saturday, right as Ben started developing a consistent fever (like, 103.4 at one point!) which led us to discover his most recent double ear infection (again!) we found a break in the clouds as the Tylenol did its work and headed to their Parking-lot Party:
That night was when his temperature crept up... with a cooling bath and some more Tylenol, we called the doctor's line and were told to bring him in the next morning (how cool that there was a doctor in the office on a Sunday?!)
In we went, where we discovered the afore-mentioned double ear infection. They prescribed a third anti-biotic (as he'd been on amoxicillin before his last ear infection, which was treated with augmentin and I think they just wanted to see if something would be more effective...) so we then trekked to a small Ma&Pa pharmacy that had this anti-biotic in stock. While we waited for the ($70!!!!!) Rx, we
Then, on the way home we passed it - The Garage Sale! Where I found a K'Tan sling (still in original packaging!) for like, $2! And two potty-training seats for something like a buck each!
He loved cruising in this baby, even with the missing gas-cap and wobbly-wheel.. (what do you expect for $2...)
I'm sure it was the combination of being slightly still feverish and not feeling well... But the good news was that the Rx did it's job - infection was fought and the fever went down the very next morning! (We still split that Monday to stay home 1/2 day each to give Button a chance to really recoop...)
