Whatta Wednesday

Over the weekend, I had a migraine the size of Texas and spent two hours in urgent care only to be diagnosed with sinusitis and was put on antibiotics and an expectorant. There were no posts regarding the weekend plans because my only plan after Saturday was to not move.

While I felt better by Monday morning, I had to send one kid home sick from daycare. By ten o'clock Tuesday, I had notifications that sick kid had not only been diagnosed with RSV, but also won herself an extended stay Banner Desert Hospital. So, now not only am I the bearer of bad news to the healthy families, but I'm also on high alert for signs of illness and am spending most of my waking hours disinfecting things. I was very excited to discover that rubber gloves now come in an array of wonderful colors and patterns.

Today, was the first day of school.

Look how happy they are walking to school with their backpacks, lunchboxes, and bags full of classroom goodies. Even Stinky Bear was lookin' especially excited this morning.

20 minutes later...

I left a sobbing R with his kindergarten teacher and E was trying to get rid of the paparazzi.

Yeah, I love you too, Mom. See ya!

Obviously, I'm with R.

By the time I opened up shop at 8:15, I had recovered all the mascara from my cheeks and was ready to roll through the afternoon.


  1. What a week you have had already. I am sure River will have a great first day at school, he just didn't know it yet...

  2. When River came home today, I was informed that he was still crying at lunchtime. However, the contents of his lunchbox seemed to cure him. Although, not immediately.

    Poor lil' dude, I hope tomorrow is a happier day :)
