Happy Friday!! And the last Friday in August 🙂
Since I really do not know what I did since Monday let me share today only…
It started out fine, but after being at work for 15 minutes my dayhome called – insert panic, they never have called my work! – Avery had puked. Odd, very odd since she was okay all morning. I could not take the day off work and neither could Chad so I quickly rambled to my boss that I had to go get her and I would be back.
I picked her up and seeing she was just fine went back to work. I got Avery all set up at my side desk so I could work until I figured out what to do.
Shortly after my boss came in and told me it was fine, she could stay as long as needed and not to worry. Sweet. Avery spent the next 2.5 hours at the office, and behaved SO well! She did bug one co-worker (also a very good friend) a lot but she was happy to have her and would let her sit on her lap while she worked and put on You Tube cartoons for her.
I finally got a hold of my brother who said he would meet me at home in 45 minutes. I took her home and ran back to work.
Mid afternoon my brother texted me “Avery stinks, how do I change her?” Sigh. I debate sending him a YouTube link but instead tell him via text. 5 minutes later the next text reads “That was awful, she ran away from me when I took her diaper off”. I laugh. Poor Uncle. And to think he does this for free.
In the afternoon I had some blood work and shortly after started feeling really crappy. By the time I came home I could not do much but lay in bed. Chad offers to make supper and I gladly take it while I lay on the bed feeling like death.
After some food I felt WAY better. Guess a lack of food (I shared my lunch with Avery in the morning) and blood tests do not mix!
I bath Avery – we are having a great time, and then while playing hide and seek behind the shower curtain I hear a grunt, I go to grab her and it is too late. She pooped in the tub. Chad comes to the rescue again, we clean her, clean the tub, toys etc…
And now it is only 8pm as I write this and I wish it was Friday or I had some wine. BUT at the end of the day guess what my whole day tells me? I am darn lucky. I have a work that allows me to drop everything for my family all the time and lets my toddler run around the office, a 21 year old brother that also gives up his day to watch his niece for free, a co-worker/friend that sits with my toddler and watches Bubbles Guppies while she works AND a husband who skipped his workout to cook and clean up supper. It takes a village some days 🙂 And my village is pretty awesome.
Moving on…meal planning.
